"Belle De Jour"
Directed by Luis Bunuel
A masterpiece from
Luis Bunuel in which Catherine Deneuve captivates us as a respectable middle-class
wife with a very contented husband, who finds a day job in a brothel that gives her an
outlet for deeper, darker passions. "Bunuel constructs both a clear portrait of the
bourgeoisie as degenerate, dishonest and directionless, and an unhysterical depiction of
Deneuve's inner fantasy life where she entertains dreams of humiliations galore"
(Geoff Andrew). French with English subtitles.
