Film Preview: The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, 18 August, Filmhouse, Edinburgh

14 Aug

Edinburgh’s Filmhouse screena Luis Bunuel’s 1972 comedy The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie on Monday 18 at 1pm and 8pm.

According to their website:

One of Luis Buñuel’s greatest and funniest films, a scathing and surrealistic political comedy masterpiece about a wealthy group of friends repeatedly prevented from beginning their elaborate dinner by increasingly strange events.

No matter how hard they try to enjoy their meal and the privileges money affords, everything from closed restaurants to terrorists conspire to thwart their pleasures… and soon it seems that the violence is even pervading their dreams.
