The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie
Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, France / Italy / Spain, dir. Luis Buñuel, 1972, 105 min., French with English subtitles, 15

Luis Buñuel’s (Belle De Jour, Viridiana) 1972 surrealist film received the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and a nomination for Best Original Screenplay.

Well-to-do couple the Thévenots (Paul Frankeur and Delphine Seyrig) accompany friends Rafael Acosta (Fernando Rey) and Florence (Bulle Ogier) to the house of Henri and Alice Sénéchal (Jean-Pierre Cassel and Stéphane Audran), who are hosting a dinner party. 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.
