As part of their Anniversary Classics series, Laemmle Theatres present Luis Buñuel’s 1968 film Belle de Jour starring Catherine Deneuve.

Catherine Deneuve’s porcelain perfection hides a cracked interior in one of the actress’s most iconic roles: Séverine, 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 Buñuel 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 Buñuel’s biggest hits. 
DCP. France/Italy. 1968. Paris Film Production, Drama, 105 min
