The Duke of Burgundy

de Peter Strickland

Synopsis

Cynthia is a butterfly collector who has a masochistic relationship with her housekeeper, Evelyn. A passion subjected to all sorts of peculiarities, where the roles of mistress and slave aren’t as clear as it appears to be. The director of Berberian Sound Studio excels with a murky eroticism melodrama, that slow cooks the atmosphere and the fascination. 

Director

Peter Strickland
