The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie Academy Award Winner! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Rob Bracco

What can be more enjoyable then a meal among friends and family? In Luis Buñuel's surrealistic comedy The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie it is this common ritual a sextet of upper-class friends repeatedly attempt, only to be obstructed by one obscure event after another. Masterfully balancing the dichotomy of class vs. debauchery Buñuel delivers a ripping critique of the upper class. It is clear from the beginning that the lives Buñuel’s Bourgeoisie are living are not what they seem. Eventually, their true colors begin to shine; not in actual actions but in haunting dreams. What is real and what lies in the subconscious becoming exceedingly blurry and in order to deliver his message, surrealism must take over. It is hard to pigeonhole Buñuel’s classic that won him the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film 1972: An absurd odyssey? A discreet satire? Not necessarily, but definitely charming.

Academy Awards

The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie received an Academy Award for Foreign Language Film Award. The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie also received an Academy Awards nomination for Writing (Best Story and Screenplay based on factual material or material not previously published; Luis Buñuel, Jean-Claude Carrière).
