Ilan Preskovsky quote iconMadame is a very small film, consisting mostly of people talking to one another, where not a whole lot happens for most of its near-two-hour running time. It also presumably has something to say about class relations, if not class warfare, where some fairly despicable rich people treat their poor, big-hearted foreigner maid as less than nothing.
