Murderous Maids

Dir. Jean-Pierre Denis (2000). This nuanced thriller walks through one of the creepiest crimes of the 20th century—the tale of the Papin sisters, two irreproachable household domestics who inexplicably butchered their employers. The movie doesn’t share the farcical aspects of Genet’s The Maids or Chabrol’s La Ceremonie; it’s an unnerving exercise in restraint that dramatizes but doesn't explain, the inference being that nothing can.
