Belle De Jour
What makes this movie a classic is the way it switches between dreams and reality, right until the end where you are left to choose weather the whole thing was a fragment of a pent up woman's imagination who chose to dwell in her erotic fantasies or the reality of an adulteress trying to satisfy needs that arose after being molested when she was a child.
To me, the ending was optimistic in a sense that her fantasies and reality merged. And when her husband asked her once more:
"A quoi penses-tu Severine?"
She truthfully answered:
"Je pense a toi Pierre"
She let him in, with a promise of a happy ending.But that's just the way it spoke to me.
Catherine Deneuve looked as stunning and stylish as a YSL muse should be.
A fabulous movie.
