This film is not only a good story about a black girl who travels from Africa to France as a housemaid for a French family, it's a very disturbing look at how poorly white French families treated their black help during the 1960s, and, more in general, at what it meant to be black during that time period, even if black meant from Africa, not black-American.

Highly recommended.

Though it doesn't have consistent flow throughout, this movie delivers what turns out to be almost a cute tale of a platonic encounter between a thief with a heart and a girl in a bad place. Worth watching as a nice mellow foreign drama.
