The porcelain perfection of Catherine Deneuve (Repulsion) hides a cracked interior in the actress’s most iconic role: Séverine, a chilly Paris housewife by night, a bordello prostitute by day. This surreal and erotic late-sixties daydream from provocateur for the ages Luis Buñuel (Viridiana) 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.
I always wanted to watch this movie and finally found it. What a disappointment had and waste of time! I had read the novel several years ago as part of a Psychology class. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Skinner

Excellent film. Rather esoteric and cerebral. You might want to actually think about what your seeing and what it really happening during the film. Read morePublished 6 months ago by John Beckwith
