Réalisateur: Luis Bunuel, 1967, 101min,with Michel Picccoli
Unable to share intimacy with her husband, Séverine seeks to fulfill her sexual fantasies as a Belle de Jour, a daytime prostitute. What could be a lurid tale becomes a masterpiece of erotica in the eye of filmamaker Luis Bunuel, confirming Deneuve's reputation as a fearless actress. Deneuve, dressed by Saint-Laurent, also exmplifies the eternal elegance we have come to associate with French women.
