(pronounced [bɛl də ʒuʁ]) is a 1967 French drama film directed by Luis Buñuel and starring Catherine Deneuve, Jean Sorel, and Michel Piccoli. Based on the 1928 novel Belle de jour by Joseph Kessel, the film is about a frigid young housewife decides to spend her midweek as a high-class afternoons as a prostitute while her husband is at work. She loves her husband dearly, but cannot bring herself to be physically intimate with him. She indulges instead in vivid, kinky, erotic fantasies to entertain her sexual desires.
The title of the film is a pun on the French term, "belle de nuit" ("lady of the night »,a prostitute), but Séverine works during the day under the pseudonym "Belle de Jour". Her nickname can also be interpreted as a reference to the French name of the daylily (Hemerocallis), meaning "beauty of [the] day", a flower that blooms only during the day
