A beautiful young housewife, haunted by memories of her past, indulges in her wild erotic fantasies that eventually lead her to begin work at a brothel during the day. Surrealist master Luis Buñuel’s most successful and considered ‘most conventional’ film, widely regarded a cinematic classic.
A very unique touch and delicate atmosphere. Brilliant use of foreshadowing and symbolism. Notable performance from Catherine Deneuve as the beautiful, distant and dreamy Severine.
A discourse on human psychology and the emotion. Subtle, mysterious, surreal, memorable.
Inspired such films as Basic Instinct and Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut, among many others. Winner of the Venice Film Festival Golden Lion Award.
Claimed by Buñuel as his “last film”, a promise which he broke two years later with The Milky Way (1969).Must See!
