Renowned filmmaker Manoel de Oliveira follows up Belle de Jour, Luis Buñuel’s 1967 study of erotic perversion, with this wickedly sly but affecting tribute. Bulle Ogier replaces Catherine Deneuve as the masochistic housewife-turned-whore, and Michel Piccoli reprises his role as the family friend who stumbled on her secret 38 years earlier.
