Luis Buñuel Double Feature!
THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE / THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE
THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE
1972, Rialto Pictures, 102 min, France, Dir: Luis Buñuel

This later Luis Buñuel masterpiece and 1973 Best Foreign-Language Oscar winner is a return to the subversive director’s Surrealist roots and a showcase for his scrumptiously satirical wit. A sextet of upper-class friends (including Fernando Rey, Stéphane Audran, Delphine Seyrig and Jean-Pierre Cassel) attempt to dine together but are continually stalled by a streaming series of vaudevillian events, both real and dreamed. In French and Spanish with English subtitles.


THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE
CET OBSCUR OBJET DU DÉSIR
1977, Rialto Pictures, 102 min, France, Spain, Dir: Luis Buñuel

The acclaimed final film from director Luis Buñuel stars Fernando Rey as a wealthy older man who fruitlessly pursues a beautiful dancer (played by both Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina) during a terrorist insurgency. In French and Spanish with English subtitles.
