Diary of a Chambermaid

Synopsis

This wicked adaptation of the Octave Mirbeau novel is classic Luis Buñuel. Celestine is a beautiful Parisian domestic, who upon arrival at her new job at a provincial estate in 1930s France, entrenches herself in sexual hypocrisy and scandal with her philandering employer. Filmed in luxurious black-and-white Franscope, Diary of a Chambermaid is a raw-edged tangle of fetishism and murder and a scathing look at the burgeoning fascism of the 1930s.
