(French language film with English subtitles)

Adapted from Ruth Rendell’s classic best seller, Claude Chabrol earns his ‘French Hitchcock’ tag with one of his most shocking and unforgettable thrillers. The insecure and introspective Sophie (Isabelle Huppert) is hired as a maid by the bourgeois Lelievre family. They treat her generously enough and expect diligence and reliability in return. However, Sophie befriends the postmistress Jeanne (Sandrine Bonnaire), who has a disturbed history and manipulates the maid against the Lelievre’s. Things get worse when the family discovers a secret that Sophie has been hiding and she gets fired. Sophie and Jeanne will return to the house later on the rampage with tragic consequences.
