"Bunuel’s art is as insolent as ever. The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is a deeply funny movie, as a viewing experience it’s like walking across a perilous, sway little bridge whose guide rails periodically snatched away."—David Denby, The Atlantic

"An exotic and brilliant hothouse flower of a film."—Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"A cosmic vaudeville show – an Old Master’s mischief...this is Buñuel’s most frivolously witty movie.”—Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

An ambassador and his bourgeois pals try to dine together again and again as circumstances, carnal and otherwise, intervene. One of surrealist master Buñuel's late career triumphs is now fully restored and ready to meet a new audience craving the director's particular flair for the anarchic skewering of ruling elites. The film brims with humorous satire and incisive criticism expressed in ways that can only be described as "Buñuelian."
