THIS September, be prepared to see beauty queen Kylie Verzosa as “The Housemaid”, an erotic thriller from Viva Films, where she can go from being innocent to wild, cool, then fierce.

Kylie plays Daisy, a woman in her 20s who is offered a huge salary mainly to take care of Nami, daughter of William (Albert Martinez), a billionaire, and Roxanne (Louise Delos Reyes), who is pregnant with twins. Daisy succeeds in building rapport with the young child, but that’s not all. She gets the attention of her boss as well. William begins to secretly flirt with Daisy, enticing her with glasses of wine and his piano playing, and they eventually begin a sexual relationship. Since Daisy has become somewhat chummy with Roxanne, the latter finds nothing suspicious about her. But there is someone in the mansion that Daisy cannot fool, Ms. Martha (Jaclyn Jose), the Mayordoma who knows everything that is happening inside the house.

Apart from Ms. Martha, Daisy also has to be mindful of the presence of Roxanne’s mother, Madam Ester (Alma Moreno). Although Ester has no power over her very domineering son-in-law, she is still a mother who must protect her daughter. Directed by Roman Perez, “The Housemaid” is an adaptation of a South Korean film that was first shown in 1960, then had a remake in 2010, originally entitled “Hanyo”. The latter won awards in different international film festivals, including Fantasporto in Portugal, Oslo Film from the South Festival, and even our very own Cinemanila International Festival. It received a nomination for the Palme d’Or, the highest prize awarded at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.
