Part case history, past surrealist prank, Luis Bu˝uel's Belle de Jour gets a stunning new Blu-ray transfer, bolstered with the usual treasure trove of extras, from the Criterion Collection.

Belle de Jour is not simple. Director Bu˝uel knows that what motivates people can only be guessed at, even by those acting on those motivations.
