Belle de Jour th Anniversary DVD

Luis Buñuel’s Belle de Jour is as much a surrealist piece of avant-garde cinema as it is a portrait of a confused woman trying to chase away her inner demons in the best ways that she can find. The film was the biggest hit of both Buñuel’s and Deneuve’s careers and helped push the concept of surrealism in feature films even further.

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.
