    Genuinely unnerving movie.
  2. Troubling and powerful film, lingering on screen well into the final credits and in the minds of its audience long after the house lights have come on.
  3. Denis and Testud, in a wondrous collaboration of a gifted director and equally gifted actress, succeed in making Christine a tragic figure.
  4. Ms. Testud's performance, which earned her a César, the French Oscar, for most promising actress, is the source of the movie's lingering, troubling power.

    May ultimately be no more than the sum of its (body) parts, but it's still a ghastly service-industry horror story - a film to make you wonder what might be roiling beneath the surface of the placid young woman who hands you your Grande Latte every morning.
  6. Lucidity, austerity and quiet compassion are peculiar virtues to ascribe to a movie about a horrific real-life murder case, but those are among the best qualities of Jean-Pierre Denis' Murderous Maids.
  7. Never inspires more than an interested detachment.

    I thought the fiilm was wonderful! The characters were well developed. The story line was easy to follow I love the setting in which the film I thought the fiilm was wonderful! The characters were well developed. The story line was easy to follow I love the setting in which the film was developed. Enjoyed the soft muted colors that were used throughout the film since I do not speak French. I found the sex scenes to be hot and revolting at the same time because are sisters. Once I got over that hurdle the murders that I had to witness were earth shattering! Excellent adult film! I love films that drives me to the brink of allow me to drop and then pull me back up again only to drop me again! Expand
