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. Dripping with eroticism and dread, The Duke of Burgundy is a darkly decadent melodrama from Peter Strickland, the award winning writer and director of Berberian Sound Studio and Katalin Varga.
