Movie Info

Celestine (Jeanne Moreau) has a new job as a chambermaid for the quirky M. Monteil (Michel Piccoli), 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 (Georges Geret), 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.

Audience Reviews for Diary of a Chambermaid (Le journal d'une femme de chambre)

  • Oct 24, 2011
    This is another Buñuelian study on the rotten core of the bourgeois, but the fact that it comes disguised as a sort of household drama makes one have to look harder to see into his agenda. The always fascinating Jeanne Moreau and the glossy widescreen cinematography make it stand out among the director's other films, but I frankly prefer when he's having fun with his sardonic and sinister view of the world.

    fairly conventional and far from buñuel's best; it's a serviceable study of the foibles of the bourgeois and hypocrisy of small town life. moreau is always watchable. i'm interested to see renoir's version with paulette goddard

    Buñuel explores the Fascism of 1939 yet again with a satirical eye, but without any neorealist or surrealist tone. The result may be unexpected and even unsettling for strong Buñuel fans, and it is indeed far from his strongest projects. Nevertheless, Moreau is a complete blast! Try to find a more admirable female characterization in a drama of the same genre and treatment, and you''ll be in for a treat. 85/100
