John Malkovich is always brilliant and his underrated comedic style is in full flight here as the charming British businessman, Andrew Blake who  in a twist of fate  is mistaken as the new butler for a once-distinguished manor house, now a shadow of itself, with rooms, staff, and residents all longing for better days.

It is owned by the graceful yet aloof Madame de Beauvillier (Fanny Ardant) who also shines in this stylishly entertaining  film that explores culture clashes, unexpected friendships, and second chances at happiness.

Adapted from  Gilles Legardinier’s international hit novel, Complètement Cramé! which has been translated into 17 languages and sold over a million copies across 22 countries comes this hit comedy that has also been sold world wide based on the star power of Malkovich and Ardant and the literary success of the novel.

Tired of a world in which he no longer fits, deprived of those he loves who are disappearing one by one, Andrew Blake (Malkovich)  decides to leave the management of his small business to be hired as a butler in France, the country where he met his wife. By landing at the Beauvillier estate, where no one knows who he really is, he hopes to follow in the footsteps of his past.

However, encounters and out-of-control situations will decide otherwise Between Nathalie, his widowed boss with a strange schedule, Odile, the cook and her explosive problems, Manon, a young lost cleaning lady and Philippe, the well-struck manager who lives at the back of the park, Andrew will no longer have a choice. He who was looking for a way to end it all is going to be forced to start all over again.

“Mr Blake at your service! has all the right elements to be a great popular film: it’s based on a huge literary success translated in many languages, a feel-good comedy with crossover of generations and cultures, and interpreted by strong, glamorous cast on top of their games.” Deadline
