French true-crime documentary The Women and the Murderer (or Les femmes et l’assassin as called in France) is headed to Netflix around the world in September 2021. 

Arriving on Netflix globally, the documentary comes from Mona Achache and Patricia Tourancheau who write and directs the doc.

Here’s the logline for the The Women and the Murderer which arrives on Netflix on September 9th, 2021:

“This documentary follows a police chief and a murder victim’s mother in their unflagging efforts to find and prosecute a serial killer in 1990s Paris.”

The documentary film documents the infamous Parisian killer Guy Georges who is also known as The Beast of Bastille. He went on to rape and murder at least 7 victims throughout his reign of terror from 1991 through to 1997. He was also responsible for numerous other crimes including various assaults and stabbings.

He operated in the neighborhood of Bastille and is still alive to this day with him currently serving a life sentence.
