Duke of Burgundy

OT: Duke of Burgundy

Peter Strickland // United Kingdom, 2014
Fiction Feature // FF2015



The life of insect scientists Evelyn and Cynthia runs according to the same daily pattern: strict Cynthia dedicates herself to her research, while making Evelyn (Chiara D‘Anna) do demeaning tasks. It soon becomes clear that this is in fact the everyday erotic routine of a pair of lovers. There is no-one to disturb their remote country life, in which the only social contact consists of talks on butterflies and crickets. But one autumn the power structure between the two women changes.
