Belle De Jour (Classic Film Pick)

BELLE DU JOUR (JAP) Luis Bunuel’s 1967 film “Belle De Jour” starring Catherine Deneuve as the wife of a wealthy doctor who begins spending her afternoons working in a high-class French brothel specializing in the kinks of its clientele. Outrageous and yet anchored in desire and erotic fantasy, “Belle de Jour” is a fascinating cinematic achievement that dares to connect Deneuve’s porcelain beauty to a world of bourgeois rebellion. It is a sublime picture filled with surprise and nuance.
