Director Peter Strickland turned heads amongst cult film circles with his Berberian Sound Studio
, a lushly realized tip of the hat to the classic giallo styles of the 1970s that honored the past while also working in Strickland's own unique voice. He does the same with his latest effort, The Duke Of Burgundy
, an absolutely gorgeous erotic drama that may not be for everyone but will surely be greatly beloved by a certain tier of cineaste.
Day after day, Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen) and Evelyn (Chiara D'Anna)
act out a simple yet provocative ritual that ends with Evelyn's
punishment and pleasure. As Cynthia yearns for a more conventional
relationship, Evelyn's obsession with erotic spells quickly becomes an
addiction that may push the relationship to a breaking point.
The first trailer for Strickland's latest is freshly arrived on the scene, get your first taste below.
