Solange and Claire are two housemaids who construct elaborate sadomasochistic rituals when their mistress (Madame) is away. The focus of their role-playing is the murder of Madame, and they take turns portraying either side of the power divide. The deliberate pace and devotion to detail guarantees that they always fail to actualise their fantasies by ceremoniously "killing" Madame at the ritual's denouement. The Maids is a 1975 British film, based on the play of the same title by the French dramatist Jean Genet.
