The Chambermaid Lynn
German Cinema • Drama
Lynn (Vicky Krieps, PHANTOM THREAD) is the most meticulous chambermaid in her hotel, leaving no shelf undusted, no sheet untucked. Crippled by shyness, she rummages through guests' belongings and even hides under their beds, vicariously experiencing their conversations, meals and discreet interludes. After clandestinely observing an S&M session, Lynn discovers the phone number of the call girl, Chiara. Bold and unrestrained, Chiara soon draws Lynn out of her shell, opening her up to a new kind of passion she had only dreamed about as a voyeur.
Winner of the Fipresci Prize at the Montreal World Film Festival THE CHAMBERMAID LYNN is "Brilliant. An intimate character piece that's all about the details." (The Hollywood Reporter)
