Friday Night Movie Night

A film that has been on my watch list for a long time, and I ended up watching 3 times this week. Visually Belle de Jour is absolutely stunning, I can't wait to do some more research into French cinema from this period. I did briefly study Godard at university, but I felt like I was really too young at the time to appreciate him. Given the subject matter of Belle de Jour there are of course some brilliant lingerie moments - but this film has so much more to it than just the visual. Highly recommended.  

Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Jean Sorel
Year: 1967
Director: Luis Bunuel
Genre: Drama
What it's about: A housewife who spends her afternoons as a prostitute, and whose fantasies and realities blur into one
Awesome outfit rating: 10/10
Quality Movie Rating: 10/10
Entertainment rating: 10/10
