Synopsis

Catherine Deneuve returns to the screen in all her splendour in this beautifully restored presentation of Luis Buñuel’s 1967 classic Belle de Jour.
Deneuve is Severine, the beautiful, bored young wife of a wealthy Parisian surgeon, who submits to her conjugal duties rarely and unwillingly. After her lovestruck friend Henri mentions a secretive brothel, Severine is lured into an erotic world of high-class prostitutes. It is here Severine is given the freedom to enact her fantasies as well as a secret erotic martyrdom bound with her dark past.
Interspersing reality with dreams and childhood flashbacks, Buñuel’s captivating masterpiece is a commentary on the hypocrisy of social relations and sexual politics that is as relevant today as it was upon its release.
