Film: The Maids

"When slaves love each other, it's not love"
Solange

The Maids is a 1974 movie based on an absurdist play with the same title by Jean Genet, which in turn is very loosely based on the case of infamous Papin sisters. It revolves around sado-masochistic hate-love of two Psycho Lesbian sisters serving as maids. They take turns to put on their mistress' dresses and impersonate her while the other still plays a maid in their masochistic game. Slowly, the urge to kill their beloved and hated mistress becomes stronger and stronger, and their deranged minds weaker and weaker...
