Synopsis

A great Bunuel film in which he updated the famous Mirbeau novel about the decadent French upper classes of the 19th century to 1928. Jeanne Moreau plays the chambermaid, both demure and cunning, who takes a position in a cheerless chateau, and immediately becomes the newest "object d'art" for a whole family of perfectly ordinary perverts, from the shoe-fetishist father to the gamekeeper, who is a reactionary and a rapist. In French with English Luis Bunuel---France---1964---97 mins.

Moves along smartly. Moreau is bewitching as a scheming and double crossing servant who maneuvers around lechery, intrigue, class restrictions and civic indifference to get what she wants. Pointed social commentary and a murder mystery. What more could one want?
