Matthew Weiner's pick: La Cérémonie

** Films on the Green's 10th Anniversary **

MATTHEW WEINER’S PICK
LA CEREMONIE

 

"The superb acting, directing, and exquisite score of La Ceremonie combine to create an unnerving mixture of kindness and evil.
This masterpiece of storytelling seems more relevant than ever, elevating a classic noir mood to unforgettable social commentary.
" - Matthew Weiner
 


Directed by Claude Chabrol
With Isabelle Huppert, Sandrine Bonnaire, Jacqueline Bisset
1995 | Crime-Drama | 1h52 | France | Janus Films/Institut français

When Catherine Lelievre hires rigid, taciturn Sophie, she thinks she has found the perfect housekeeper for her family’s remote mansion in Brittany. But, detached and automated, Sophie displays odd behavior that becomes inexplicably disturbing. When she becomes friends with the impertinent, outspoken busybody Jeanne who runs the post office, the tension between Sophie and her employers increases.
