Starring Sandrine Bonnaire, Isabelle Huppert, Jacqueline Bisset
Catherine (Jacqueline Bisset) hires the illiterate Sophie (Sandrine Bonnaire) as her maid. But Sophie soon falls under the influence of the mysterious postal worker Jeanne (Isabelle Huppert), and the stage is set for a tale of murder, violence, and betrayal. This late-career triumph from Claude Chabrol exemplifies the New Wave auteur’s mastery of suspense and twisted psychodrama.
