      Amy Taubin Film Comment Magazine A brilliant social satire, set during the ongoing international financial crisis, it stars the irresistibly forthright Karin Viard as a unionized worker... Aug 27, 2019 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times True, the movie sidesteps a couple of cliches it seems headed directly toward, but I might have preferred them to the preposterous melodrama it substitutes. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 2, 2012 Full Review Stephen Holden New York Times Paints an alluring picture of a pan-European cosmopolitan culture whose characters hopscotch from one country to another with hardly a second thought in a lighthearted floating party. Rated: 3/5 Dec 8, 2011 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension Whether or not it fully works is questionable. In my opinion, it does not really, growing a bit exaggerated even for the world Klapisch has laid out. Yet the final act does make good thematically and, depending on your politics, quite satisfyingly so. Feb 10, 2021 Full Review Martin Tsai Critic's Notebook Unfortunately, "My Piece of the Pie" isn't the kind of indie charmer Mr. Klapisch used to make. Oct 7, 2015 Full Review Don Groves sbs.com.au An odious Master of the Universe learns some humanity from his maid. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 29, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Disappointing work of Klapisch, full of cliches and technical errors. Waste of time. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Very dramatic even for its genre as the story progresses in an even fashion to reach an anticipated and quite unsatisfying ending. The performances however were profound especially that of the lead actress but unfortunate the slow and dull ending failed to give the movie a good rating. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Pas tenu plus de 25 min. Bouleversant de platitude et de clichés. Le jeu d'acteur fait mal aux dents. À éviter. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Another quite good and non-formulaic french movie. This one is about an out-of-work single mother who just lost her job at a factory (which has been closed due to company outsourcing to Asia) and made a suicide attempt. She recovers and finds a nanny job with a wealthy stock-trader in Paris who turns out to be the very person who crashed her company's future for a quick profit. Interesting tension for sure. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review walter m In "My Piece of the Pie," everything is coming up roses for Stephane(Gilles Lellouche), an investment banker, as he is promised a huge promotion in the future. That's not to mention his making time with Tessa(Marine Vacth), a beautiful supermodel. By comparison, his new maid, France(Karin Viard), had been laid off from work in Dunkirk, suffered a nervous breakdown, attempted suicide, failed at running a free day care center before moving to Paris, leaving her three kids behind in the care of relatives. There are some neat things about "My Piece of the Pie" like its attempt to say something meaningful about class and the informative lecture about buying and selling stocks. Otherwise, the movie has no idea what it really wants to be, as it is all over the map, both geographically and story wise. For example, the sequence in Venice is supposed to establish Stephane's lack of commitment but instead comes off as something much creepier. There is also a dance number set to "Pretty Woman," with all of the implications that the song now carries.(On the other hand, bonus points for the Serge Gainsbourg song.) And while the ending is meant to be celebratory in a corny sort of way, it is to be honest quite frightening. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member After a 20 year employment at a company comes to a screeching halt, a hardworking single mother finds herself struggling to piece together the remains of a failed suicide attempt. She ironically ends up finding a job cleaning the house of the man responsible for her current state and as time is spent with him, we begin to find out who he really is. My Piece Of The Pie was a good movie which explores the complications of socioeconomic hierarchies and the mindsets which accompany them.
