A French and Spanish co-production, That Obscure Object of Desire is of two minds, straddling the discrete worlds of man and woman, past and present, bourgeois and bohemian, domestic and urban… Set against the backdrop of a terrorist insurgency, That Obscure Object of Desire portrays sexual desire as a literal battleground, where the stakes are high and the opposition is a shapeshifter.

That Obscure Object of Desire is surreal insofar as it depicts an extreme that is horrifically logical: the inability to express one’s true emotions. The film presents a world in which a woman is capable of pathologically taunting a man who tries to buy her affection, if only because they cannot clearly communicate their honest desires to one another.

Like all films where nothing exists but the logical sequence of situations, That Obscure Object of Desire (1977) transfers very well to television. Nothing distracts from the essential, since only the essential is left.
