"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 )

11 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in German and English and held by 45 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)
