Celestine has a new job as a chambermaid for the quirky M. Monteil, his wife and her father. When the father dies, Celestine decides to quit her job and leave, but when a young girl is raped and murdered, Celestine believes that the Monteils' groundskeeper, Joseph, is guilty, and stays on in order to prove it. She uses her sexuality and the promise of marriage to get Joseph to confess -- but things do not go as planned.
Solid. One of my favourites, both in terms of Bunuel (my 4th favourite director ever) and of Moreau. Sheer, unadulterated genius. There was never anyone quite like him and there never will be again--and that's a dirty rotten shame. Paraphrasing David Thomson, he once said that every film frame from both Renoir or Bunuel was perfectly shot. And thankfully he was accurate.
