This virtually plotless tale of six middle-class guests and their interrupted attempts to have a meal together was the recipient of the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar as well as two BAFTA awards on its release in 1972.
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.
