The Diary of a Chambermaid
Celestine, the chamber-maid, has a new job in the country, at the Lanlaires. She has decided to use her beauty to seduce a wealthy man, but Mr. Lanlaire is not a right choice: the house is firmly controlled by Madame Lanlaire, helped by the strange valet Joseph. Then she tries the neighbour, former officer Mauger. This seems to work. But soon the son of the Lanlaires comes back. He is young, attractive and does not share his mother's antirepublican opinions. So Celestine's beauty attracts Captain Mauger, young Georges Lanlaire, and Joseph. Three men, from three different social classes, with three different conceptions of life. Will Celestine be able to convince Georges of her sincerity?

The Diary of a Chambermaid torrent reviews
(fr) wrote: It looks absolutely great. Has every chance of joining the ranks of Gallipoli and Breaker Morant. It may even contribute to future generations' understanding of the Australian experience in the Great War. Faithfully following the story contours of the standard war movie, Beneath Hill 60 is a gritty, realistic, often unnervingly atmospheric recounting of the vaguely trained diggers who tunnelled deep under German trenches to plant mines, get on each other's nerves and keep count of Europe's population of rats. Made on a hefty budget of $8 million, the film is well-mounted, well-paced and well worth seeing. Marks the welcome return of the epic war movie, in this post-Gallipoli true life story of heroism, mateship, and the consequence of warfare. Driven by a fine script and top performances, this powerfully affecting drama reveals an astonishing untold Australian war story. VERDICT: "High-Quality Stuff" - [Positive Reaction] This is a rating to a movie I view as very entertaining and well made, and definitely worth paying the full price at a theatre to see or own on DVD. It is not perfect, but it is definitely excellent. (Films that are rated 3.5 or 4 stars)

(nl) wrote: "The Curiosity of Chance" is a crude, shabbily produced attempt at making the world's biggest stereotype a witty and likable personality. Needless to say, the only curious thing about this nonexistant flop is who had the bright idea to make a film against homophobia, and then literally exemplify its embodiment in the lead character.
