Trivia Belle de Jour

'Belle de jour' is a day lily in French, a flower that blooms only by day, as Severine is available only during the afternoons. "Belle de jour" is also a sort of pun, as it reminds us of "belle de nuit", an euphemism for prostitute. In the rape scene, her dress was fitted with Velcro to give off a tearing sound as it was ripped away. According to Luis Buñuel scholar Julie Jones, Buñuel once said that he himself didn't know what the end exactly means.
