In his final film, Luis Bunuel decided to use two actresses, Angela Molina and Julien Bertheau, to represent the two sides of a tempestuous young flamenco dancer. Against a backdrop of terrorist bombs and social unrest, Mathieu a wealthy Frenchman becomes frustrated and humiliated as he pursues Conchita, a young woman from Sevilla. Their violent relationship is complicated by the fact that Conchita is determined to remain a virgin until she is married. After boarding a train, much to the surprise of his fellow passengers, Mathieu pours a bucket of water over Conchita while she stands on the platform. As the train leaves Conchita standing in the station, Mathieu explains to his fellow passengers how he came to be obsessed by her.

La voie lactée = The milky way by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

45 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Buñuel's most vigorous critiques of Catholic doctrine, The Milky Way is a picaresque tale about a pair of scraggly pilgrims who set off from Paris to experience an age old European tradition, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. In the course of their journey, they traverse not only space, but time, traveling back in history to bear witness to Jesus' speech at the wedding in Cana, as well as remarks by the Virgin Mary about her son's grooming habits. Before the pilgrimage comes to an end, both the Devil himself and the Marquis de Sade make an appearance. Discussions of the articles of faith include the observations of a rural police inspector, whose skepticism about the nature of the Eucharist leads him to conclude, "You'll never convince me that the body of Christ can be enclosed in a piece of bread!"
