The Last Days of Emma Blank (Film)

Rate: 3 of 5
Genre: Sexual content, drama and partly slice of a life
Source: Dutch

Plot: Emma Blank, a house owner, awaited her death and would leave her inheritance to her household staffs as she had no family. Haneveld, a head housekeeper, had a motive of serving her for gaining the inheritance. Attempting to curry a favour with Emma Blank, he forced other staffs to serve her very well without a sincerity. His daughter, Gonnie, never felt happy under the same roof as a maid. She faced more difficulties of having Meier who was deeply in love with, harsh speeches from her own father, higher expectation from the master, less privacy.

In the middle of the film, Emma Blank announced that she had no asset to pass down to the disrespectful servants. All of the staffs gave up of serving their master and started to live on their own without the command from the master. They ignored the moan from her, leaving her lying on the ground. She was really dying.

In the viewpoint of Gonnie, she never wanted to do what they had done. She decided to move out of the household without saying a farewell to them.

Review: Gonnie is a main character in the film. It is kinda a slice of life. I think the fim tried to show how a teenage lives under the harsh condition of a large country house in countryside.
