The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie


STUDIOCANAL is proud to announce the 4K restoration of the THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE from surrealist Spanish auteur, Luis Buñuel, in celebration of the influential film’s 50th Anniversary.

Released in 1972, the film was a significant international success and won Best Foreign Language Film at the 1973 Academy Awards®.


“Luis Bunuel's The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is a deliciously pungent concoction by the 72-year-old filmmaker and his young co-scenarist, Jean-Claude Carriere, that will set your spirits soaring and your mind aglow.”
- New York Magazine


“An absurdly comic assault on the meaningless social rituals and polite hypocrisies of the upper middle class.”
- Dallas Morning News



SYNOPSIS: Buñuel’s humorous satire depicts a group of friends – the Thévenots, the Sénéchals, Madame Thévenot’s younger sister Florence and Latin American ambassador Don Rafael Acosta – make repeated attempts to dine together, but are constantly frustrated by bizarre interruptions, including a series of dreams. The film stars Fernando Rey (TRISTANA, THE FRENCH CONNECTION), Paul Frankeur (THE PHANTOM OF LIBERTY), Delphine Seyrig (LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD, THE DAY OF THE JACKAL), Bulle Ogier (L’AMOUR FOU), Stéphane Audran (COUP DE TORCHON, BABETTE’S FEAST) and Jean-Pierre Cassel (MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS).
