Diary of a Chambermaid

97 mins

FRA | 1964 | dir. Luis Buñuel, with Jeanne Moreau, Georges Géret, Michel Piccoli

Jeanne Moreau is Celestine, an attractive young woman, who arrives from Paris to become chambermaid for an eccentric and decadent aristocratic family at their country chateau. She soon gets herself entangled in a sexual game of cat and mouse with her flirtatious employer (Michel Piccoli). Filmed in luxurious black-and-white, Luis Buñuel’s Diary of a Chambermaid is a raw-edged tangle of fetishism and murder set against the backdrop of the burgeoning fascism of the era.
