Back to All Events

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (Luis Buñuel, France, 1972)

Most of the films of Luis Bunuel are comedies in one way or another, but he doesn’t go for gags and punch lines; his comedy is more like a dig in the ribs, sly and painful.
— Roger Ebert

A group of bourgeois friends plan to get together for dinner but experience a succession of highly unusual occurrences that interfere with their expected dining enjoyment. Buñuel’s surrealist classic received the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and a nomination for Best Original Screenplay.
