The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie

Directed by Luis Buñuel

A group of upper class friends continually have their dinner plans thwarted and events take a surreal turn in Buñuel’s discreet charm of the bourgeoisie, arguably the most accomplished film from a master of politically charged cinema. The film plays with dreams and reality, presenting classic Buñuel themes: class, patriarchy and the Church. Fernando Rey, Michel Piccoli and Delphine Seyrig are impeccable in this gem of surrealist cinema.
