Product Description

Luis Buñuel's surrealist satire takes on targets as diverse as South American politics, the upper class and religion. Well-to-do couple the Thévenots (Paul Frankeur and Delphine Seyrig), accompany M. Thévenot's colleague Rafael Acosta (Fernando Rey) and Mme. Thévenot's sister Florence (Bulle Ogier), to the house of Henri and Alice Sénéchal (Jean-Pierre Cassel and Stéphane Audran), who are hosting a dinner party. On arrival, however, Alice explains that she expected them the following evening and has no dinner prepared. Inviting Alice to join them for dinner at a local inn, the party quickly leave when they discover that the manager died a few hours earlier and his former employees are holding a vigil over his corpse, awaiting the coroner. So begins a series of increasingly bizarre episodes and surreal dream sequences as the diners, over the course of the following days, find themselves repeatedly frustrated in their attempts at eating out.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply a great masterpiece 12 July 2012
this is one of bunuel's greatest films. a masterpiece. perfect from the acting to the script to the setting.
the film is 1000% bunuel, covering and including all the key elemnts of his cinematic vision.
the film won an extremely deserved academy award as best foreign laguage film (it was also nominated for best original screenplay) , plus many other important prizes.
you should not miss it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly disappointing! 11 Aug 2013
By Mike K
Verified Purchase
I was expecting brilliant satire but the film did not hold my attention for long.

After an intriguing opening in which guests turn up for dinner on the wrong night, the film quickly became repetitious and, quite honestly, boring.
