    This, Bunuel's best film, is infused with that ungraspable sense of mystery that is unique to his work. How he exactly does it, is hard to put your finger on. It might be the interplay between his at times bone-dry mise-en-scene and the rich, ambiguous use of sound. It may be the wisps of flashbacks that do more to suggest the inner life of Séverine than a long monologue ever could. It might be in the unforgettable icy beauty of Deneuve's face, who in a heartbeat can show an entirely different side of her character that we would never have expected to see.
    The subtlety and elusiveness of this film that will keep it alluring and fresh for atleast another fifty years.
