Screening of “Belle de Jour” at the Rubin Museum of Art

1967, France, Luis Buñuel, 101 min.


Introduced by psychoanalyst Vanessa Sinclair


Séverine, a stunning Parisian housewife, satisfies her fetishistic desires by secretly spending her after­noon hours working as prostitute in a bordello while returning to her devoted husband and her affluent life in the evening. Embodying one of her most iconic roles, Catherine Deneuve assumes the identity of Belle de Jour in this surreal and erotic late-sixties film from provocateur Luis Buñuel. Fantasy and reality commingle in this cinematic transgression, one of Buñuel’s most enduring hits.


“Luis Bunuel’s erotic masterpiece Belle de Jour is one of the sexiest films ever made.” —Matthew Sheldon, Classic Art Films
