Belle De Jour (dvd)

"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.

Sâeverine, a frigid, beautiful young woman married to a doctor, indulges her sexual fantasies by working at a brothel on weekday afternoons.
