Le Charme discret de la bourgeoisie = Discreet charm of the bourgeoisie by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

76 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Luis Bunuel's deliciously satiric masterpiece about social mores and class hypocrisy. Opening with a group of friends arriving on the wrong day for a dinner engagement, so begins a sequence of unexpected and unusual events. In their quest for a lavish feast, the dividing line between reality and dreams becomes unclear for each guest, leading the viewer on an intoxicating journey that at once appears both calculated and careless. A masterpiece of surrealist cinema"--Container

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

32 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 469 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!"

Der diskrete Charme der Bourgeoisie by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine illustre Abendgesellschaft versucht wiederholt, sich zu einem gemeinsamen Dinner zu treffen. Leider kommt immer etwas dazwischen: mal haben sich alle im Datum geirrt, mal ist der tote Restaurantbesitzer direkt im Speisesaal aufgebahrt oder eine Manövertruppe stört das elegante Gastmahl. Mit seiner meisterlichen Satire über ein genusssüchtiges Grossbürgertum, dem seine Gaumenfreude permanent verwehrt wird, beruft sich Buñuel einmal mehr auf seine filmischen Wurzeln. Die surrealistischen Erzählelemente seiner frühen Arbeiten verquickt er mit der spielerischen Eleganz und der unverblümten Ironie seines Spätwerks. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)

Das Gespenst der Freiheit by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine lose Sammlung grotesker Situationen: ein kleines Mädchen ist verschwunden und auf dem Polizeirevier diktiert der Vater die Personenbeschreibung, während das Kind doch neben ihm steht. Ein Mann schiesst wahllos von einem Hochhaus auf Passanten. Er wird schuldig gesprochen und darf als freier Mann das Gericht verlassen. Jede Kausalität ist aufgehoben, das Gespenst der Freiheit geht um. Mit seinem vorletzten Film nimmt Buñuel die surreale Fabulierfreude seines Frühwerks wieder auf und dekonstruiert ungestüm und humorvoll jede ihm erdenkliche Situation. Das berühmt berüchtige Dinner mit den geöffneten Toiletten als Sitzmöglichkeit zählt zu den ikonenhaften Höhepunkten seines Œuvres. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)
