LE CHARME DISCRET DE LA BOURGEOISIE
France, Italy, Spain | 1972 | Luis Buñuel
Winner of the 1973 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Luis Buñuel’s famous late masterpiece is a surrealistic comic nightmare in which upper middle class friends who have gathered for a dinner party find their meal delayed repeatedly by bizarre happenstances. (Let’s call it “co-eat-us” interruptus.) The chic cast includes Fernando Rey, Delphine Seyrig, Stéphane Audran, Bulle Ogier, and Jean-Pierre Cassel. “A blistering but witty assault on the director’s constant targets—the church, the state and the army.” –Holt Foreign Film Guide.
