Belle De Jour 50th Anniversary Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Stunningly restored for the 50th anniversary, BELLE DE JOUR is an elegant and erotic masterpiece and undoubtedly Luis Buñuel's most accessible film. Screen icon Catherine Deneuve plays Séverine, 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 Clémenti), and ignites an obsession that will court peril. Buñuel 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? Interview with Dr Sylvain Mimoun Commentary by Professor Peter W. Evans NEW Interview with Jean-Claude Carrière NEW Masterclass with Diego Bunuel and Jean-Claude Carrière NEW Trailer INCLUDES 6 ARTCARDS [show more]

Catherine Deneuve, Jean Sorel and Michel Piccoli star in this classic French drama co-written and directed by Luis Buñuel. Bored doctor's wife Séverine Serizy (Deneuve) hears of a brothel operating near her home and, struck by a sudden desire, goes there to offer her services in the afternoons. While there she encounters a wide range of characters, only to eventually run into trouble with gangster Marcel (Pierre Clémenti) and her husband's friend Husson (Piccoli) who has discovered her secret.
