"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 by Luis Buñuel( visu )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 19 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)

A group of middle class couples attempts to have dinner are continually thwarted by various external or internal intrusions. At first, the guests arrive only to find out that the invitation is for the next day. When he is not busy creating comic diversions, Bunuel highlights the absurd. While three guests are waiting for their tea, which never arrives, a glum leutenant joins them to recount a gruesome tale from his childhood. It is revealed that the charming ambassador of "Republic of Miranda" is also a drug trafficker, and when he is not busy shooting at a terrorist's puppet toys, he is busy seducing his partner's wife. The film alternates between reality, dreams, and dreams within dreams as the characters unwittingly expose the emptiness that resides behind a facade of bourgeoisie propriety
