Belle De Jour: The Criterion Collection

The porcelain perfection of Catherine Deneuve hides a cracked interior in the actress's most

iconic role: Séverine, a chilly Paris housewife by night, a bordello prostitute by day. This surreal and erotic

late-sixties daydream from provocateur for the ages Luis Buñuel is an examination of desire

and fetishistic pleasure (its characters' and its viewers'), as well as a gently absurdist take on contemporary

social mores and class divisions. Fantasy and reality commingle in this burst of cinematic transgression,

which was one of Buñuel's biggest hits.
