Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
