BELLE DE JOUR is a drama, from 1967, in which a married woman decides to work afternoons in a brothel.

Sex

There are scenes of sexual fetish activity, including whippings, spankings and bondage, as well as sexual fantasies involving violence, degradation and an apparent lack of consent. There is discussion of sexual fantasies, sexual fetishes and prostitution.

Other issues include moderate bad language ('bitch', 'whore'), outdated references to race ('coloured') and mild violence (including shootings).
