La Nana

Dir. Sebastian Silva

Chile, Mexico 2009 | Colour | 93 mins | Comedy

Cast: Catalina Saavedra, Claudia Celedón

After 23 years of dutiful service to the Valdes family, Raquel (Catalina Saavedra) has come to regard herself as not only a maid but a family member. But her employers start to worry about her workload after Raquel repeatedly clashes with their teenage daughter, and they hire additional help. Frantic that her position is under threat, Raquel utilises ever more childish antics to sabotage each new employee. Brilliantly observed and featuring an award-winning performance from Catalina Saavedra, Sebastian Silva’s acclaimed black comedy recalls the satirical genius of Luis Buñuel.
