The Door ( Az ajto) (2012) Film. Director: István Szabó

Successful writer Magda hires a housekeeper, elderly neighbor Emerenc Sherdás, to clean her elegant home. Thanks to the perfect, old-fashioned service, Magda is willing to overlook Emerenc’s odd behavior. What is she hiding about her past? And why does she refuse even a peek to the woman who is closest to her – her employer, whose authorial fantasy is beginning to get the better of her? For his splendidly staged psychological drama set in the 60s, István Szabó offered an outstanding acting opportunity to British actress Helen Mirren.(Mubi)
