  • La Cérémonie

    1995. France. Directed by Claude Chabrol. Screenplay by Chabrol, Caroline Eliacheff. Working from a novel by Ruth Rendell, loosely based on the same case that inspired Jean Genet’s play The Maids, Chabrol delineates the social and sexual tensions that underlie an apparently idyllic bourgeois household in Brittany. Sandrine Bonnaire is the sullen young woman hired as a maid by a successful art dealer (Jacqueline Bisset) to help around her family estate; Isabelle Huppert is the local postmistress, who draws Bonnaire into her world of class envy and violent resentment.
