3.0 out of 5 stars The lost seduction, June 3, 2013
This review is from: The Chambermaid (DVD)
Depicting a woman in a French maid outfit carrying a weapon, the poster promoting THE CHAMBERMAID makes this 2004 film appear to be a horror flick. However, THE CHAMBERMAID, the story of a love triangle of bad choices and even worse choices, is not HAZEL GOES PSYCHO. It would be stretching it to call THE CHAMBERMAID a horror film although at times it is alarming, seeing how two individuals behave with respect to their hearts' desires. A chambermaid/bartender can't help herself but to stay with her money-squandering, substance-addicted, violent boyfriend. Her hotel manager can't help himself but to pursue her, even when it becomes clear drugging the young woman is the only way to have her in his arms.

The things we do for love.

Not surprisingly, THE CHAMBERMAID is known by an appropriate alternate title, LOVESICK: SICK LOVE. Lead actor Fiona Horsey, playing title character Julia, seems familiar to me but reviewing her credits on the I.M.D.B. web site, THE CHAMBERMAID is my first audience with her. She's a commanding presence, fleshing out an individual you will root for or root against - if not both - as she does what she feels is necessary.

Despite a few too many weak plot devices, THE CHAMBERMAID will hold your attention on its strength of presenting people who refuse to accept reality as they continue chasing love when they should know it's time to cut their losses. Perhaps we can all relate, even though we may not wish to admit it, let alone go as far as Julia and her boss do.
