FRA/ITA | Séverine is the elegant and privileged wife of a noted doctor. Frigid in all aspects, she is each afternoon the star attraction in a discreet brothel, behind her husband’s back… But how many of her activities are reveries and how many actually take place… even Buñuel cannot answer. By the end, the real and imaginary meld… An exquisite tale of self-discovery and tragic passion.
