"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

L'age d'or by Luis Buñuel( visu )
71 editions published between 1930 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 905 libraries worldwide
Luis Buũel's second film is a surreal attack on bourgeois ideals that incited a riot when first released and still retains its power to shock. Buũel began the film as a collaboration with Salvador Dalí, but after a few days working together the two had a falling out and Buũel made the film himself, incorporating many of Dalí's ideas. Its narrative follows two nameless characters, a man and a woman, through a series of scenes connected by dreamlike logic as they try, unsuccessfully, to make love. One memorable sequence finds the couple writhing around on a cliff when a mob of socialites comes upon them and pries them apart. Frustrated, the man sees a yelping poodle and kicks it into the air. "L'age d'or" is not only an attack on bourgeois life but also a doctrine that directs humanity to live as the surrealists believed they should: that is, by placing love before everything else in life, such as the church, status, and family. Funny, disturbing, and thoroughly bizarre, Buũel's film is a purposefully blasphemous and corrosive work that attacks social institutions with such vigor and imagination that one cannot help but be entertained

Luis Bunuel's final film explodes with eroticism, bringing full circle to the director's lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire.

With subversive flare, Bunuel uses two different actresses in the lead role: Carole Bouquet, a sophisticated French beauty and Angela Molina, a Spanish coquette. Drawn from Pierre Louys's 1898 novel, La Femme et le Pantin
