The Duke Of Burgundy DVD (2014) Artifical Eye New Sealed
From the critically acclaimed writer-director of Berberian Sound Studio comes a tale of passion and sadomasochism that penetrates the deepest depths of what it means to be human, in love and in control.
Dark drama exploring the sadomasochistic relationship of a lesbian couple. Two entomologists indulge in elaborate role play where Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen) harshly punishes the younger, innocent Evelyn (Chiara D’Anna) for all her misdemeanours. But their act is entirely fabricated with Evelyn in fact pulling the strings. As their relationship evolves over time, the limits of their bond are tested as previously novel acts grow old and Cynthia yearns for a more conventional partnership.
LAST ONE AVAILABLE
Cynthia is an orthopterist who is seemingly firmly in control of her partner Evelyn through a strict, dictatorial fetish life behind closed doors. But as Evelyn’s requests to be dominated become increasingly extreme the true nature of their relationship begins to surface.
The Duke of Burgundy is a story about power and the exploration of discomfort that people will stretch to for the ones they love, told in mesmerisingly coruscating style by one of Britain’s finest contemporary auteurs, Peter Strickland.
