Séverine and Pierre are a young, relatively young married Parisian couple in a comfortable civic environment. Outwardly, they are in a loving, happy marriage, which denies the fact that they usually refuse his romantic and sexual advances in the bedroom. He tolerates her rejection in his love for her. Although she tells him about the harmless situations of her many dreams, she does not tell him the details, which always include controlling and humiliating her in some form of sexual dominance. She does not know why she rejects him sexually or why she has such dreams. She learns from various sources that one of her distant married girlfriends, a woman named Henrietta, works as a prostitute in a high-end brothel that she did not even know existed. Although Séverine initially feels uncomfortable with both the thought and the actual actions of having sex with strangers, she is attracted to working in such a firm. In this way, Séverine may be able to cast out some demons in her life, but perhaps not at the expense of others.
Belle de Jour is one of my favorite movies directed by Luis Buñuel. Belle de Jour is little different than other movies made in hollywood, but you will not regret watching it online. Belle de Jour is kind of surprise of 1967, the rest of movies made in France wasn't as successful as this one. With such good actors cast, the movie just can't be bad. Producer of this movie was Luis Buñuel. Enjoy watching, you can also filter all movies to show only movie directed by Luis Buñuel or starring only Catherine Deneuve, just click on the names.
