Unhappy in her marriage, Madeleine Beudet escapes reality by playing the piano. One day, her husband receives tickets to the opera but Madame Beudet refuses to accompany him. Alone in their family home, her desire to escape turns into a thirst for murder…
In this prescient, visionary short, feminist-surrealist Germaine Dulac brings to life the inner turmoil of a lonely woman, caught between stifling domesticity and the wild freedoms of her imagination. A marvelous portrait of a most unhappy marriage, caught in startling and unforgettable images.
