Luis Buñuel directs Fernando Rey, Delphine Seyrig and Stéphane Audran in this surreal classic where a group of posh friends cannot ever make a date for dinner without the world falling apart.
The value system and societal structures it lampoons don’t really exist anymore so the series of skits and bad behaviour have become a little dusty. It is a film you admire more than get actively involved with. Having said that, I found the first half continually erotic, and if that intention was there in Buñuel, then it is camouflaged beneath the surface.
