The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie

This Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film is a comic meditation from filmmaker Luis Bunuel on societal conventions and class, as well-to-do friends attempt to gather for a dinner party where the obstacles preventing them from doing so become more and more surreal and bizarre - including the discover that they are characters in a play. Fernando Rey, Delphine Seyrig, Stephane Audran, Jean-Pierre Cassel and Paul Frankeur star in this film widely considered by critics to be one of the finest social satires ever made.
