The Discreet Charm of The Bourgeoisie DVD review
The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is a surreal masterpiece by Luis Bunuel and co-written with Jean-Claude Carrière, from the by-gone year of 1972.
The film illustrates the weirdness under the conventions that are now historically so much more distant.
Hindsight, a beautiful tool, helps us to understand how Bunuel absorbed the various modish form of agitprop and radical chic and subverted these within his film.
The action of the film is based around a group of individuals who are always attempting to meet up for dinner parties and soirees only to find that the event is ruined by an absent host, or a misunderstanding or even a bizarre turn of events.
The surrealist and anthropologist in Buñuel was fascinated by the ritual of the dinner party. Buñuel equated the dinner party, without a host, to resemble humanity frantically inventing intricate rules for itself in the absence of God.
A brilliant film that never loses its touch.
