Papin Sisters


Recommended Posts

I just ran across an interesting documentary on a crime I'd never heard of.  The Papin sisters who killed their employers in France in 1933 in an brutal attack.

I've never heard of this crime and the documentary is really good the way it explores the psychological angles which is my favorite aspect of true crime.

Some parts are in French with subtitles but mostly in English.

Thanks for posting this documentary. Their case is interesting, and I, too, appreciated the psychological angles. My favorite take-away, though, is the "overwhelmingly mediocre" report submitted by the specialists at trial. (Or was it 'overwhelming mediocrity?' Either way that's a pretty good descriptor that I intend to use now and then.
