Chambermaid on the Titanic, The

A FILM BY Bigas Luna


Synopsis

Horty, a French foundry worker, once again wins the annual grueling triathalon organized by his company's boss. This year the prize is extraordinary: a round-trip ticket to Southampton, England to watch the Titanic leave on its maiden voyage. In his Southampton hotel room Horty is approached by Marie (Aitana Sánchez-Gijón), a stunning chambermaid due to board the Titanic the next day. Believing in Marie's hard luck story of having no place to spend the night, Horty apprehensively agrees to share his room with the beautiful stranger. In the morning, Horty wakes up alone. Returning home to his wife (Romane Bohringer), Horty's recount of the night he met Marie morphs into stories of wild sex and steamy entanglings before an ever-growing audience of barroom cronies. Zoe feels the very real threat of Horty's naked emotions and joins in on the storytelling in hopes of saving the marriage.
