The Diary of a Chambermaid (1946)

The Diary of a Chambermaid is a 1946 Jean Renoir film starring Paulette Goddard, Burgess Meredith, Reginald Owen, [later Dame] Judith Anderson, Irene Ryan, Hurd Hatfield, & Francis Lederer. I enjoyed this. Great characters, and interesting plot and a good balance between the main plot and the sub plots involving the minor characters. Definitely re-watchable.

Slant Magazine has a positive review. DVD Talk says it "is far from Jean Renoir's best, to be sure, but it's still a Jean Renoir picture and thus still has enough going on to make it worthwhile." TCM has an overview.
