What a strange and haunting film! I won't soon forget it. What a vast difference from the role three years before which brought Catherine Deneuve to fame- As "Genevieve" in Umbrellas of Cherbourg. The DVD includes a booklet with an interview with Luis Buñuel (the director), which I throughly enjoyed reading after watching the film.

The current rating is 2.5 stars, which is ridiculously low for this Bunuel classic. It's certainly not his best film, but it's brilliant nonetheless. Catherine Deneuve is perfect as Severine.
