The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie

Trailer Review

Opens August 26

Revival House

 In director Luis Buñuel’s surreal fantasy, the six bourgeois friends repeatedly gather for a dinner that never quite arrives. A case of broken communication, perhaps? Or is there some other kind of warp in the space-time continuum? With his startling cast—Fernando Rey, Delphine Seyrig, Bulle Ogier, Jean-Pierre Cassel—and a strong current of socio-political discontent, Buñuel plays deep and mystifying games with reality. (France, 1972, 100m)

“Combines a masterful command of the medium with a mischievous, anarchic sense of imaginative freedom.” –New York Times
