Watch the trailer for the 50th-Anniversary Restoration of Luis Buñuel’s Belle de Jour


Luis Buñuel’s Belle de Jour celebrates its 50th anniversary and has had a brand new 4K restoration. It premiered at this years Cannes. It will open in French cinemas next month.

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.

The film stars Catherine Deneuve, Jean Sorel, Michel Piccoli, Geneviève Page, and Pierre Clémenti.

Belle de Jour returns to French cinemas on 2nd August 2017.
