Belle de Jour

belle-de-jour-style-Yves-Saint-Laurent-posterIt's been gloomy and cold in San Francisco the past few days, perhaps a prelude to summer. Sunday, I took advantage of the grey skies and watched Belle de Jour, the 1967 French drama staring Catherine Denevue, a housewife who is compelled to work as a prostitute in a famous brothel in Paris. It was an interesting film, a little racier than I imagined for a film in the late '60s, but Catherine Denevue was such a vision, as always. Does anyone have any recommendations for old french films?
