|Belle De Jour|
Buñuel's adaptation on Joseph Kessel's novel, finds the sublimely beautiful Séverine (Catherine Deneuve, dressed by Yves Saint Laurent) married to a successful doctor, yet emotionally sealed off in matters of physical intimacy.
Unmoved by her handsome young husband's solicitude, Séverine opts instead for a little afternoon subjugation in a Parisian brothel.
A childhood trauma is intimated in a brief flashback, but in Buñuel's cool, cryptic film, the line between remembered events and Séverine's excursions into ever more bizarre erotic fantasy becomes increasingly tenuous as her marriage slips through her fingers.
