The Duke of Burgundy

15 yrs 104 minutes 2014 6.5

The lovers Cynthia and Evelyn explore in a sadomasochistic play the role of housekeeper and Countess. But when the submissive one, Evelyn, tests her partner's patience by increasingly advanced demands, the game turns into a serious trial in devotion, friendship and love boundaries. Moviezine's Jonna Vanhatalo writes that "The Duke of Burgundy is a sweet, fun and sometimes even uncomfortable, yet still very romantic movie that keeps ypu feeling long and well afterwards. However, it's not for everyone [...] simply because it just tastes like something a little different. A taste that is difficult to categorize or explain, but in the right mouth brings tantalizing pleasure to several other senses at the same time. "
