DIRECTOR: LUIS BUñUEL

CAST: FERNANDO REY, PAUL FRANKEUR, DELPHINE SEYRIG, BULLE OGIER, STéPHANE AUDRAN, JEAN-PIERRE CASSEL

A who’s who of postwar Euro stars—including Fernando Rey, Delphine Seyrig, Stéphane Audran, and Bulle Ogier—convene for a swank dinner party that never occurs, their attempts to sit down to a meal thwarted by a series of increasingly absurdist interruptions: an inedible roast, a dead host, a police raid, a stranger arriving to tell the tale of his murderous youth... A drawing room comedy of unflappable upper-crust manners played according to dream logic, this is perhaps the most subversive film ever to win an Oscar—much to Buñuel’s horror!
