Belle de Jour


Dir. Luis Buñuel (1967).       
The great surrealist’s coolly outrageous masterpiece, starring Catherine Deneuve as a haute bourgeois matron who spends her afternoons working in a respectable, but hardly deluxe, brothel is founded on the director’s genius for free-associative chitchat and orchestrated Freudian slips right down to its teasingly open ending.
