Buñuel's satirical drive may not be as fine as in The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, but this remains a classic example of what could be called Cinema of the Absurd. A group of dinner guests are unable to leave the room in which they ate; soon the small-talk descends to insults. A brilliant depiction of how breaches in social etiquette become the breakdown of society's laws.
