Part of BAMcinématek 2014 series Buñuel
Directed by Luis Buñuel | 1964

With Jeanne Moreau, Michel Piccoli, Georges Géret

“He digs right down to that spiritual gunge which links political, sexual and social positions (and impositions) as equal perversions of human desires.”
—Time Out London

Parisian maid Célestine’s (Moreau) new job at the oddball Montreil family’s country estate comes with some unexpected duties, as she finds herself contending with a coterie of foot fetishists, fascists, and, maybe, a murderer. The first of the director’s celebrated collaborations with screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, Buñuel sets this sardonic upstairs/downstairs satire in the 1930s, and its increasingly jaundiced tone comes to reflect the period’s mounting political unrest, with disquieting shades of Nazi horrors to come.
