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