Synopsis


Paris in 1960. Jean-Louis and Suzanne Joubert live a very quiet, middle-class existence in an elegant tenement building. Things are a good deal livelier on the sixth floor of their building where all the female staff lives. The most recent arrivals are ‘guest workers’ from Spain: six women of different ages from Burgos. Jean-Louis finds himself increasingly drawn into their world – a world that is so different to his own.
