A Question of Silence (De stilte rond Christine M., 1982)

Short url: 


Three women - strangers to each other - kill a man they do not know. The film then follows a criminal psychiatrist’s interviews with the women to try to ascertain their sanity, and the ensuing court case, with surprising results.

Marleen Gorris debut film was highly controversial but also highly acclaimed when it got released (incl. winning the Dutch Gouden Kalf award), and is now hailed as a feminist classic.

And for a bit of local history: It's filmed at the Bijlmerbajes and other locations in Amsterdam.

Entrance through the garden, up stairs behind the Buddha. If stairs are a problem there is a properly accessible door (and WC) from the other side, but you'll probably need to contact folks to open it.
