Surrealism in post-war France

Gangsters in Paris. Flic on a motorbike. Brothel where your fantasies come true. Coach going where? (It's a Mystery Tour - Voyage Surprise!).

I have seen this movie only twice, the last time being about 20 years ago at the London Barbican. Just thinking of it brings back memories of times and places.

It is /was in monochrome and reflective of Bunuel, but has optimism that denies the devastation of WW2.

Probably my favourite movie of all time. I would so much like to see it again - is there any chance of a video/DVD release in the UK?

Hollywood must have made a remake of it? - if not there is surely an opportunity.
