Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie

102 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA | 1972 | dir. Luis Buñuel, with Fernando Rey, Paul Frankeur, Delphine Seyrig, Stephan Audran

This Oscar-winning comedy of manners, written by Jean-Claude Carrière, sends an elegant cast of six middle-class people on an increasingly frustrating – and bizarrely eventful – search for a meal. Buñuel surrealistically skewers the conventions of society and offers a wicked social satire, turning the establishment, from the police forces to the politicians, into criminals.

The screening on 12 Jan will be followed by a discussion with Nick Walker (Rochester Kino Cinema Club).
