Luis Bunuel announced himself as a filmmaker and artist with the short film Un Chien Andalou, which he made with Salvador Dalí. Throughout his career, his films continued to ignore narrative conventions; they’re more concerned with satirically poking fun at their characters than telling the audience a story. The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie often feels like a surrealist sketch show, with each scene building towards a punch line. The film examines a group of wealthy establishment figures and their attitudes towards many issues such as war, drugs, religion, poverty and sex.
The dark underbelly of the French upper classes is exposed in this blackly humorous tale.
