Several bourgeois friends planning to get together for dinner experience a succession of highly unusual occurrences that interfere with their expected dining enjoyment.Written by

Bulle Ogier recalled that Stéphane Audran (wearing Lagerfeld) and Delphine Seyrig (wearing Chanel) were engaged in an elegance contest. They asked Buñuel if he could give a close-up to the back décolletages of their dresses, a wish he was happy to grant in exchange for one bottle of champagne and one of whiskey. See more »

There are not many artists who could tell the same joke over and over again and get away with it creating the film as brilliant, funny, absurd, witty, and clever as Buñuel's "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie", 1972. The story of six friends who try to arrange and have a nice dinner together but cannot complete (or even start) their meal does not sound very exiting but wait until you watch this comedy. I've always known how interesting surrealism is but I never thought how funny it could be. I've seen the film four or five times - it only gets better with each viewing. Highly recommended.
