In an unnamed European town, in an unspecified year, live Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen) and Evelyn (Chiara D’Anna). Every day Evelyn cycles to Cynthia’s mansion to work as a lowly maid and every day the cruel, vindictive Cynthia inflicts countless sadistic humiliations upon her. But as the days go by and the pair begin to reveal themselves, it soon becomes clear that the humiliation may not all be of Cynthia’s design…

Startling, stylish and heady with atmosphere, The Duke of Burgundy is a dazzling exploration of romance, relationships and desire from the multi-award winning director of Berberian Sound Studio. Laden with wit and brimming with filmic references, it is one of the most remarkable films of the year and will leave you reeling.

“this is one of the most incisive, penetrating, and empathetic films ever made about what it truly means to love another person” AV Club
