Catherine Deneuve’s porcelain perfection hides a cracked interior in one of the actress’s most iconic roles: Séverine, a Paris housewife who begins secretly spending her after­noon hours working in a bordello. This surreal and erotic late-sixties daydream from provocateur for the ages Luis Buñuel is an examination of desire and fetishistic pleasure (its characters’ and its viewers’), as well as a gently absurdist take on contemporary social mores and class divisions. Fantasy and reality commingle in this burst of cinematic transgression, which was one of Buñuel’s biggest hits.

Director Luis Buñuel’s 1968 masterpiece Belle de Jour has stood the test of time as one of film’s best erotic dramas, still claiming a top place in modern day cinema. Along with Belle de Jour, Buñuel has created other classics, such as The Obscure Object of Desire, The Phantom of Liberty, The Exterminating Angel, and others.
