Catherine Deneuve stars in one of her 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 Luis Buñuel is an examination of desire and fetishistic pleasure, as well as a gently absurdist take on social morality and class divisions.
