Has nothing to do with the [[Webcomic/DeathAndTheMaiden webcomic of the same name]], or that one arc of ''Comicbook/{{Batman}}'' comics concerning Nyssa al-Ghul. Not to be confused with the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeathAndTheMaiden artistic motif of the same name]].

Directed by Creator/RomanPolanski and starring SigourneyWeaver and Creator/BenKingsley, ''Death and the Maiden'' covers the events of one night, a decade after the revolution in an unnamed South American country. A lawyer brings a neighbor (Kingsley) home in a storm, where the housewife (Weaver) becomes convinced that the neighbor tortured her years ago. The trio deal with the accusations, old memories, and the conflict between revenge and the law over the course of the night.

While positively reviewed (still at 7.2/10 on IMDB) the movie performed poorly at the box office and received scant attention from award committees.
