DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE
In 1972, Spanish surrealist filmmaker Luis Buñuel (Belle de Jour) collaborated with writer Jean-Claude Carrière (Cyrano de Bergerac) to create one of the most satirical and bizarre films of modern times. Rewarded with an Academy Award® for Best Foreign Language Film and a nomination for Best Original Screenplay The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is about a group of six upper middle class friends who repeatedly try to have dinner together, but their plans are thwarted by events both real and increasingly surreal.
Black comedy, biting satire all combine to deliver a captivating film of well-observed vignettes - spiraling out of control to cause maximum mayhem, where surrealism is just the beginning.
