Episode 561: Belle de Jour (1967)

Guest Co-Host: Samm Deighan

We’re wrapping up “Frenchuary” with a look at Luis Buñuel's Belle de Jour. Based on the 1928 novel by , the film was released in 1967 and stars Catherine Deneuve as our titular belle. That’s the name she’s given when the normally straight-laced Severine secretly lives out her submissive fantasies at a Paris brothel.... Or does she?

Samm Deighan joins Mike to discuss the dream-like film as well as the "sequel" and several other adaptions of Kessel's story.
