L' Invitation (The Invitation)
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, this is perhaps one of the best films to come out of Switzerland. The acting is effortless, the dialogue flows, and the story revolves around an office party thrown by an office drudge whom, to the surprise of his co-workers, invites them to an office party in his home--a mansion, complete with servants! What follows is a case of strangers thrown together discovering each other and is a masterpiece of understatement as the ever-patient butler tries to keep a lid on the situation. ~ Tana Hobart, Rovi
