Stunningly restored for the 50th anniversary, BELLE DE JOUR is an elegant and erotic masterpiece and undoubtedly Luis BuÃ±uel's most accessible film. Screen icon Catherine Deneuve plays SÃ©verine, the glacially beautiful, sexually unfulfilled wife of a surgeon, whose blood runs icy with ennui until she takes a day-job in a brothel. There she meets a charismatic but sinister young gangster (Pierre ClÃ©menti), and ignites an obsession that will court peril. BuÃ±uel uses diffused lighting, dark colours, and shadows throughout the film to temper the gravity and emotional... impact of each uncomfortable scene. Left to our own imaginative devices, the result is a film that is highly unsettling, perverse, and inevitably tragic. SPECIAL FEATURES: The Last Script A Story of Perversion or Emancipation?
