Synopsis

A frigid, beautiful housewife in Paris with a kinky, sadomasochistic imagination starts an afternoon job as a prostitute in a local brothel while her husband is away at work.

Our take

Presenting a masterpiece from a real master! Luis Buñuel’s magnificently kinky dark comedy about secret desire was his biggest popular success, and it continues to shock, provoke, and delight audiences to this day. And Mlle. Deneuve in YSL—sly, opaque, gorgeous—is nothing short of iconic. In HD.
