  • (Written and directed by Marleen Gorris, with Cox Habbema, Nelly Frijda, Henriette Tol and Edda Barends) An extraordinary murder is committed by three women, all strangers to each other. During the trial, their deep seated rage towards the male-dominated society in which they live stuns the courtroom. The court-appointed psychiatrist, also a woman, gradually comes to understand and sympathize with the three women and to question her own nature.
