Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie

Luis Buñuel ফ্রান্স, 1972

Thomas's rating of the film The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie

This was my introduction to Buñel's feature-length films. I remember being impressed by its merciless skewering of the class society. But it has gone on to be one of my least favourites. There are still many elements I can appreciate, but in my opinion Buñel has made far more effective and affecting films. The dead soldiers' surreal exchange on the deserted street, however, still chills me to the bone.
