Plot Synopsis:

Glenda Jackson (Sunday Bloody Sunday) and Susannah York (The Killing of Sister George) provide a volatile mixture of class confrontation, Freudian passion, and criminal mischief in this unbridled, expertly cinematic rendering of the play by Jean Genet, one of the most creative and provocative minds of the 20th Century. Solange and Claire are Paris maids who tend to the domestic needs of a cruel socialite (Vivien Merchant). Whenever Madame is away, the bonnes obsessively act out complex psychodramas of domination and control that fuel a lust for revenge upon the haughty woman they serve.
