Synopsis:
Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen) is an orthopterist who is seemingly firmly in control of her partner Evelyn (Chiara D'Anna) through a strict, dictatorial fetish life behind closed doors. But as Evelyn's requests to be dominated become increasingly extreme the true nature of their relationship begins to surface. A story about power and the exploration of discomfort that people will stretch to for the ones they love, told in mesmerisingly coruscating style by one of Britain's finest contemporary auteurs, Peter Strickland.

Aesthetic cinema - The Duke of Burgundy review by PT

Spoiler Alert

This film is an ultra classy art house vehicle. Beautifully shot with an unexpected storyline, it is funny, erotic, intense, sad and above all, intriguing. The two protagonists are superb, particularly Sidse Babett Knudsen who genuinely moved me with her performance. If you appreciate art house please give this a viewing.

Indulgent nonsense - The Duke of Burgundy review by PE

Spoiler Alert

I really don't know what all the fuss is about this film. Yes it has some clever camera work and is filmed in a nice location which means that there are some landscapes, nature shots etc. but hey, I can go to an art museum if that's what i'm looking for. As to the 'story'... er, two middle aged lesbians one with particularly weird sexual needs and the other very accommodating YAWN!

Waste of time - The Duke of Burgundy review by NC

Spoiler Alert

Fitstly, I don't remember ordering this, secondly the unattractiveness , poor acting skils and full gloss tights of the main heroines have put me off so much, I will be watching that 'Add to my list ' button very carefully now.
