A gray view of city roofs provides both the first and the last image in this drama of stifled lives adapted from the novel by Emile Zola. Thérèse is married to her cousin Camille, a spoiled mama's boy unlikely to grow out of it, as Mama lives with them, pampering Camille and bullying Thérèse. His childhood friend Laurent, upon meeting Thérèse, falls in love almost instantly. This leads to a torrid affair, which spirals out of control into murder. A chance witness blackmails the lovers, and Mama--paralyzed by a stroke upon learning of Camille's death--suspects the truth. The witness is killed while crossing the street in front of a speeding truck. However, he has ordered his maid to mail a letter if he does not return, and the lovers are relentlessly pursued by their fate

"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. In their quest for a lavish feast, the dividing line between reality and dreams becomes unclear for each guest, leading the viewer on an intoxicating journey that at once appears both calculated and careless. A masterpiece of surrealist cinema"--Container

Der diskrete Charme der Bourgeoisie ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1972 and 2011 in German and English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eine illustre Abendgesellschaft versucht wiederholt, sich zu einem gemeinsamen Dinner zu treffen. Leider kommt immer etwas dazwischen: mal haben sich alle im Datum geirrt, mal ist der tote Restaurantbesitzer direkt im Speisesaal aufgebahrt oder eine Manövertruppe stört das elegante Gastmahl. Mit seiner meisterlichen Satire über ein genusssüchtiges Grossbürgertum, dem seine Gaumenfreude permanent verwehrt wird, beruft sich Buñuel einmal mehr auf seine filmischen Wurzeln. Die surrealistischen Erzählelemente seiner frühen Arbeiten verquickt er mit der spielerischen Eleganz und der unverblümten Ironie seines Spätwerks. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)
