Synopsis >

Catherine Deneuve’s porcelain perfection hides a cracked interior in one of the actress’s most iconic roles: Severine, a Paris housewife who begins secretly spending her after­noon hours working in a bordello. This surreal and erotic late-sixties daydream from provocateur for the ages Luis Bunuel 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 Bunuel’s biggest hits.
