Luis Bunuel

Currently unavailable

Amoeba Review

This wicked adaptation of the Octave Mirbeau novel is classic Luis Bunuel. Jeanne Moreau is Celestine, a beautiful Parisian domestic who, upon arrival at her new job at an estate in provincial 1930s France, entrenches herself in sexual hypocrisy and scandal with Bunuel regular Michel Piccoli as her philandering employer. Filmed in luxurious black-and-white Franscope, ~~Diary Of A Chambermaid is a raw-edged tangle of fetishism and murder - and a scathing look at the burgeoning French fascism of the era.
