Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Severine (Catherine Deneuve) is a listless haute bourgeouise wife with a secret afternoon life of prostitution. Her life twists repression and guilt together with uninhibited behaviour, strangled libido with its liberated counterpart.

Luis Bunuel was catapulted into cinematic history by his groundbreaking Dali collaboration, Un Chien Andalou, in 1929, but it is Belle de Jour (1967) which inaugurates the extraordinary late phase of his work. It is a film shimmering with reflections on truth, fiction and fantasy, in addition to caustic social insight, as it tells the story of a woman clearing her mind, perhaps, of its ghosts.

Synopsis:

This is an examination of Louis Bunuel's Belle de Jour, a piece about a bourgeoise wife who lives a secret afternoon life as a prostitute. The book examines the film and its reflections on truth, fiction and fantasy, and its social insight on the tale of a woman clearing her mind of its ghosts.
