Belle De Jour

  " Sometimes I wish I didn't see the films that I saw at such a young age ... Emanuelle ... Last Tango in Paris , Bitter

 

     Moon ... just to name a few . In fact , I met Bertolucci a few years ago and I told him I was angry that in a way he

 

     ruined my life .  Then to realize that a little bit he ruined it and a little bit he made it wonderful "  xox Karla 

 

 

Belle de Jour is a 1967 French drama film directed by Luis Buñuel and starring Catherine

 

Deneuve, Jean Sorel, and Michel Piccoli. Based on the 1928 novel Belle de jour by Joseph Kessel, the film is about a

 

young woman who spends her midweek afternoons as a prostitute while her husband is at work.[2]

 

The title of the film is a pun in French. A "belle de nuit" ("lady of the night") is a prostitute. Séverine works as a

 

prostitute during the day, so she is a "belle de jour". It may also be a reference to the French name of

 

the daylily (Hemerocallis), meaning "beauty of [the] day", a flower that blooms only during the day.
