In Detail

It is still superbly disturbing when everyone assembles around a dinner table in an unfamiliar house and then, when one wall suddenly moves away, they discover themselves to be on stage in a blaze of unnatural light, inspected by an auditorium full of frowning theatregoers.

“I don’t know my lines,” mutters Sénéchal (Jean-Pierre Cassel) to himself in a cold sweat. An exotic and brilliant hothouse flower of a film. If you've never been a Bunuel film, this is a fine one to start with; Luis Bunuel is one of life's great originals and he's in top form here.

A deliciously pungent concoction.
