by Jean Genet
Director: Suresh Nampuri
Once upon a twilight, in a lonely garret---Two maids navigate the crushing reality of their servile existence by cosplaying their mistress, in her absence, and concoct highly imaginative scenarios where they plot to kill her, leading to scenes that veer from light-hearted silliness to the absurdity of gothic terror, with a segue into the erotica of nascent psychosis, but all the time barely keeping at bay, the all-consuming cruelty of their drab lives.
Soak in THE MAIDS, from the eerily compelling mind of Jean Genet, and experience the hot tongues of merciless desperation that drive the warped heart of dark erotica, through a looking glass most cruel.
