The Duke of Burgundy

Drama, Cult 1h 40m 2014

AroView: BORGEN star Sidse Babett Knudsen throws aside the responsibilities of leading the Danish nation to star in this slice of arty-kink from the director of BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO.

Fashioned in the aesthetic of continental soft porn of the 1970’s, Knudsen plays one of two lepidopterists locked in a series of ritual games of dominance and subservience. Like his buttoned-up protagonists, the talented director exerts appropriate discipline, though determinedly withholds cathartic release.

“Something uniquely sexy and strange, built on two tremendous central performances and a bone-deep understanding of cinema’s magic and mechanism.” ~Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.
