DRAMA -  Buñuel and screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière heighten the political content of Mirabeau's classic novel by setting it during the 1930s era of nascent fascism. The progress of Moreau's ambitious chambermaid plays on the socio-sexual undercurrents of manipulation and perversion that characterised this dark time.
