BELLE DE JOUR(BEAUTY OF THE DAY)
Severine, the very reserved wife of Pierre, is prey to masochistic fantasies which reveal her sexual frustration. Driven by curiosity, she secretly pays a visit to a brothel and unknown to Pierre, she soon becomes “Beauty of the Day”, the third girl in Madame Anaïs’ discreet house of ill-repute. She seems to have found an inner peace through the satisfaction of her clients’ desires but things turn sour when Marcel, a loutish regular visitor to the bordello, insists on having Severine all to himself.
