The Chambermaid
Published in 1900 under the title Le journal d`une femme de chambre, The Diary of a Chambermaid first appeared in the United States in 2006. Known first for Jean Renoir's 1946 mildly successful attempt, and most famously  for  Luis Bunuel's classic  1964 film,  The Chambermaid is the controversial story based on Octave Mirabeau's tale of a Parisian maid employed in a bourgeoisie country home. It sounds fairly simple a plot, though she truly puts Wisteria Lane to shame!
The Piano Teacher

Set in contemporary Vienna amidst the dichotomy of the city’s core of tradition and a coming of age into cultural decay, The Piano Teacher is a painfully disturbing romance based on Elfriede Jalinek’s 1983 Nobel Prize winning autobiographical novel of the same name.

Pain itself is merely a consequence of the desire for pleasure, the desire to destroy, to annihilate; in its supreme form, pain is a variety of pleasure.”
