La Cérémonie is a 1995 film by Claude Chabrol. It was adapted from the novel A Judgement in Stone by Ruth Rendell.



La Cérémonie tells the story of a dyslexic [1], illiterate domestic servant, Sophie (Sandrine Bonnaire) who has been hired by wealthy housewife Catherine (Jacqueline Bisset). Sophie becomes friends with an erratic post office employee, Jeanne (Isabelle Huppert), and their lives begin to spiral towards violence. Chabrol presents an ambiguous view of culture and class conflict in this film, which he jokingly called "the last Marxist film."[2]




La Cérémonie received an 90% rating from Top Critics at Rotten Tomatoes (9 fresh and 1 rotten reviews) [3] and an overall rating of 92% from all critics (22 fresh and 2 rotten reviews). [4]
