"Luis Bunuel's deliciously satiric masterpiece about social mores and class hypocrisy. Opening with a group of friends arriving on the wrong day for a dinner engagement, so begins a sequence of unexpected and unusual events.

L'age d'or by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

112 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally entitled The Frozen Waters of Egotistical Calculation, director Bunuel's L'Age D'or contains all the elements he would exploit in his lengthy career, corrupt clergymen, the church, police, and middle class society all fall under the assault of unrestrained lovers, animals and admirers of the Marquis de Sade. L'Age D'or was even too radical for Bunuel's collaborator Salvador Dali who quickly distanced himself from this cinematic provocation. In a program that accompanied the first screening of the film in France, the following explanation appeared: "The foundations are laid, conventions become dogma, policemen push people around just as they do in everyday life. And just as in everyday life accidents occur in bourgeois society while that society pays no attention whatsoever. But such incidents weaken an already rotting society that is already trying to prolong its existence through priests and policemen.....But it is love that brings about the transition from pessimism to action; love denounced in the bourgeois demonology as the root of all evil. For love demands the sacrifice of every other value; status, family, and honor." During one of the first screenings of the film, the theater was trashed by members of the Fascist League of Patriots. Paintings by Dali, Max Ernst and Man Ray were defaced and the cinema's screen splattered with purple ink. Further screenings of the film were then banned by the French authorities
