The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie


Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie (1972)
Director: Luis Buñuel
Actors: Fernando Rey, Paul Frankeur, Delphine Seyrig
Runtime: 102 min

The movie follows a group of friends from upper middle class and their consistently interrupted attempts to have a meal together. They are experts on expensive food and drinks, know how to enjoy without haste, can afford to have bizarre whims, and their problems are mostly banal. They are characterized by nonchalance of those who know that they can, the flexibility provided by wealth, and by labour of others, as well as monstrous casualness of those who know they have an irreplaceable advantage over ordinary people.
