Diary of a Chambermaid by Luis Buñuel

Diary of a Chambermaid / Le Journal d'une femme de chambre by Luis Buñuel
1964 – France – 98 min 
July 24
| 7:00 p.m.

This wicked adaptation of the Octave Mirbeau novel is classic Luis Buñuel. Celestine (Jeanne Moreau) is a beautiful Parisian domestic, who upon arrival at her new job at a provincial estate in 1930s France, entrenches herself in sexual hypocrisy and scandal with her philandering employer (Buñuel regular Michel Piccoli). 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 fascism of the 1930s. 

In French with English subtitles.

Online registration is required for this screening.

This screening is part of the film series Forever Jeanne Moreau.
