Director - Luis Buñuel
Genre - Comedy/Drama/Fantasy
There is an air of sardonic humor aimed at the bourgeois throughout this film. The premise is quite peculiar but being a Luis Buñuel outing, it's really right up his alley. A party is held at a mansion with the who's who of society, the cream of the social strata. Bizarrely though, when it had gotten late and everybody was going to excuse themselves, they can't seem to leave! It's as if an unseen force is keeping them from the front door and they are trapped against their will in the place. Days and days go by. Will these well-mannered gentlemen and dainty ladies succumb to their baser instinct? An attack on high society by master surrealist Buñuel that hits the bullseye. This is a one of a kind experience in cinema not to be missed.
