La Prisonnière (1968)

Henri-Georges Clouzot directs Elisabeth Wiener, Laurent Terzieff and Bernard Fresson in this dark drama where a dominant art dealer seduces a curious housewife.

I’m not that into geometric op art or posh S&M but I’ll quite happily say this is one of the sexiest and gorgeous films ever made. An utterly convincing journey of seduction, oblivion and experimental montage. Wiener and Terzieff’s simmering, often unspoken chemistry crackles.
