The Maids (1975) DVD5
Solange (Glenda Jackson) and Claire (Susannah York) are sisters, and servants in the household of cruel socialite Madame (Vivien Merchant). Whenever Madame is away, the sisters obsessively act out a complex role-playing psychodrama of domination and control that feeds their powerful lust for revenge upon the haughty, disdainful mistress they serve. But after falsely denouncing Madame's lover to the police, Solange and Claire's shared terror of arrest and the unchecked aggression with which they increasingly infuse their "ceremony" threaten to destroy them even as they perch on the threshold of ecstatic release.
