Day after day, Cynthia and Evelyn act out a simple yet provocative ritual that ends with Evelyn’s punishment and pleasure. As the wealthy amateur butterfly expert Cynthia yearns for a more conventional relationship, her housekeeper Evelyn’s obsession with erotic spells quickly becomes an addiction that may push the relationship to a breaking point. Dripping with eroticism and dread, and inspired by the style of Jess Franco, The Duke of Burgundy is a darkly decadent, kinky, gothic melodrama from Peter Strickland, the award-winning writer and director of the eerie Berberian Sound Studio and Katalin Varga.

This film contains scenes depicting sexual situations and / or violence that might not be suitable for minors.

Paris Without End (1959-1965)

In the 60s, Alberto Giacometti paid homage to Paris, the city where he lived, by drawing its streets, cafés, and more private places like his studio and the apartment of his wife, Annette. These drawings would make up his last book, Paris sans fin (Paris Without End).
