Written by Buñuel and his regular writing partner, Jean-Claude Carriere, and charting the rise of 30s Fascism, Diary of A Chambermaid is an intelligent consideration of political, social and sexual mores in relation to the perversity of human desires.

When Célestine (Jeanne Moreau, Jules et Jim, Touchez Pas Au Grisbi) goes to work as a chambermaid in a crumbling Normandy estate, she is privvy to the most personal of details about each of the members of the household: Mr. Monteil's craving for sex, Mrs. Monteil's embittered repression, father-in-law Mr. Rabour's refined fetishism...But when two unexpected and shocking events take place in the quiet country community, Célestine suspects that the fascist farm labourer, Joseph, is involved, and does everything in her power to make him confess.
