The self-told story of the life of a Victorian maid as she helps raise the two children in her charge


Biddy is a Victorian nanny, the sole subject of Christine Edzard’s pensive drama which chronicles a maid’s ritualistic devotion to her master’s children in fetishistic detail. Here, story is replaced by the soothing rhythm of routine, all hushed voice-over and clock-ticking interiors. A gentle, whispering cinematic lullaby.

A slow and gentle piece of story-telling
