Belle de jour (1967) - The Criterion Collection
Belle de Jour tells the story of a bourgeoisie house wife named Séverine who seems lost when it comes to her own sexual development. As an alternative, she fantasizes about repressed masochistic erotic acts, and when the fantasies are no longer enough, she turns to a secret life of high-class prostitution. Throughout the film, the lines between reality and fantasy are sometimes blurred and we’re never quite sure at times whether she is fantasizing or not.
