Watch the brand new restoration trailer for Belle de Jour

David Jenkins

Cinema’s iciest ice queen returns to the big screen with a 4K scrub up, as Catherine Deneuve primps her garters and delicately adjusts her stunning array of couture garments in Luis Buñuel’s salacious 1967 classic, Belle de Jour.

Drink in the new trailer for this new crisp restoration of the Spanish provocateur’s exploration of female sexuality and self expression. And while you’re there, catch the grande dame of French cinema in one of her most iconic roles – as the softly-spoken bourgeois wife who heads on a curious journey of enlightenment.

The 4K restoration of Belle de Jour is released in UK cinemas on 8 September.
