That Obscure Object of Desire Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Anonymous

Luis Bu˝uel's final film explodes with eroticism, bringing full circle the director's lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire. Bu˝uel regular Fernando Rey plays Mathieu, an urbane widower, tortured by his lust for the elusive Conchita. With subversive flare, Bu˝uel uses two different actresses in the lead- Carole Bouquet, a sophisticated French beauty, and Angela Molina, a Spanish coquette. Drawn from Pierre Lou s' 1898 novel, "La Femme et le Pantin," That Obscure Object of Desire is a dizzying game of sexual politics punctuated by a terror that harkens back to Bu˝uel's brilliant surrealistic beginnings.

Academy Awards

That Obscure Object of Desire received Academy Awards nominations for Writing (Best Screenplay based on material from another medium; Luis Bu˝uel, Jean-Claude CarriŔre) and Foreign Language Film Award.
