That Obscure Object of Desire
DIRECTOR: LUIS BUñUEL
CAST: FERNANDO REY, CAROLE BOUQUET, ÁNGELA MOLINA, JULIEN BERTHEAU
En route from Seville to Paris, an aging homme d’affaires (Fernando Rey) recounts his ruinous fascination with a Spanish dancer, played—in the director’s coup—by two actresses, Carole Bouquet (sullen) and Ángela Molina (sultry), who embody the dual nature of a (literally) two-faced woman. The final moment of Bunuel’s final film distills his ironic worldview into one incendiary image.
