Still: Belle de Jour

Belle de Jour

21 Nov 20087 Dec 2008

A remarkably poised and sublime fantasy from Luis Buñuel, who follows housewife Severine (Catherine Deneuve) behind closed doors and into her secret double-life as a prostitute who acts out her own S&M fantasies by catering to her clients. A psychologically complex tale that never fully shows its hand, the ambiguous nature of this film makes it ripe for revisiting, both by viewers and now by another film-maker. Hence, Manoel de Oliveira's late-arriving 'tribute' Belle Toujours, screening here in the same week.
