      Alison Macor Austin Chronicle Rated: 4.5/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com This dramatization of the story upon which Jean Genet's play The Maids is based is well acted and has some powerful moments. Rated: B- Jul 23, 2011 Full Review Nick Davis Nick's Flick Picks Missable but intriguing expansion of the story that inspired Genet's The Maids. Rated: 3/5 Aug 19, 2005 Full Review Jules Brenner Cinema Signals On screen, it seems to be an effort at psychological edginess but the potentials of the medium renders the play as bland as Isabelle. Rated: 2.5/5 May 26, 2004 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Though the subject matter is bleak and upsetting, the narrative is intelligently told. Rated: B- Apr 6, 2004 Full Review Monica Hayde Palo Alto Weekly Rated: 3/4 May 20, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      Horror fan 4 A very crazy and chilling story about 2 sister's love for one another. Avery good movie with great performances. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review Frans G In a pre-war rural town, two traumatised sisters work as housekeepers for a neurotic widow and her adult daughter. When the vital bond between the two sisters is in danger of being broken by the widow, it causes fatal consequences. A haunting film with very strong roles and physical scenes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/17/24 Full Review Audience Member Based on a true story, this is a twisted and shocking film that has a terrifying yet sad ending. It does lag somewhat at times, however the acting is excellent and paints a dark picture of 2 deranged sisters that do the unthinkable. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Lovely P Quite disturbing, creepy and super weird... but the ending is good. Jodhi May and Joely Richardson's acting was great! 9/10 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/23/23 Full Review Audience Member I don't know why Nancy Meckler didn't direct more films because this film was chilling and incredibly sad. An engaging look into lower class repression. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member If it was a good movie there was really no way of knowing because I could hardly wrap my head around the twisted relationship between these two insane sisters to even pay attention to anything else that was going on. I love movies that delve deep into the human psyche, they are fascinating, but this one was too messed up for me to stomach. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
