Diary of a Chambermaid

N.p. N.p., Circa 1964.

With a provenance stamp on the verso, along with holograph pencil and ink annotations.

Based on Octave Mirbeau's 1900 novel, which follows a chambermaid in 1930s France whose Parisian beauty and sophistication at turns alienate and arouse the bourgeoisie members of the country house where she has recently found employment.

Shot on location in Seine-Maritime, Saint-Maurice, and Essonne, France.
