Time Out says

An object lesson in how potentially liberating material (the nominal source is Octave Mirbeau's Diary of a Chambermaid) can be manhandled into heavy-handed voyeurism treading an unresolved line between the Pasolini-inspired bawdy romp and Buñuelian subversion. Celestine, fleeing a brothel after a police raid, finds herself in a stately home full of promisingly wan-looking sexual repressives she makes it her task to liberate, while still serving the needs of her fellow-workers (male and female). The print under review is rendered unwatchable by terrible dubbing.
