Luis Bunuel's films are among the most difficult to understand. Watch An Andalusian Dog, and if you manage to understand more than 2 minutes of it, then you have made it more than I ever could. Same goes for Belle De Jour, although it is pretty much straightforward - It is the ending that has left a-many baffled. This film, however, is beyond anything I've seen.

Description: Bourgeois convention is demolished in Luis Bunuel's surrealist gem The Phantom of Liberty. Featuring an elegant soiree with guests seated at the toilet bowls, poker playing monks using religious medals as chips, and police officers looking for a missing girl who is right under their noses, this perverse, playfully absurd comedy of non ...

"Director: Luis Buñuel "

"31.7. Buñuel kääntää tavat ja normit ympäri ja repii siitä 100 minuuttia tajutonta pelleilyä. Yksittäiset kohtaukset naurattavat, mutta koska elokuva on vain kokoelma erilaisia hassuttelujaksoja, tuntuu se loppua kohden jo hieman ylipitkältä, vaikka alkuun se tarjoaakin monet hyvät naurut."

" A deliciously weird fairy-tale of surrealism and, wait for it, rationality. If you've truly found the secret of Life & Happiness, then you can understand this film :)"

"7.1. (DVD) Bunuelin mahdolisesti surrealistisin elokuva sitten Kulta-ajan. Hieno herrasväki keskustelee tekopyhiä pöydän ääressä vessanpöntöillä istuen, poliisit tekevät koululuokkana esitetyllä asemalla jekkuja kapteenilleen, kaikki onnittelevat kuolemantuomion saanutta satunnaisten ihmisten murhaajaa, erään pariskunnan makuuhuoneessa tepastelee aamuyön tunneilla emu ja munkit viihdyttävät itseään korttipelillä viinalaseja kumotessaan. Ohjaajan perinteiset aiheet käsit"

“Luis Bunuel's films are among the most difficult to understand. Watch An Andalusian Dog, and if you manage to understand more than 2 minutes of it, then you have made it more than I ever could. Same goes for Belle De Jour, although it is pretty much straightforward - It is the ending that has left a-many baffled. This film, however, is beyond anything I've seen. The Phantom of Liberty is an absurd, but delicious surreal film that has amusing little scenes here and there. Characters are not given enough screen time to form a personality and associate themselves with the backdrop, and being a surreal film, many events are left unexplained and a large body of them cover taboo topics. Unusual traits for a movie, but then again Bunuel was no usual, everyday director. The scenes don't make sense” read more

"Luis Bunuel Surreal, absurd and no notion of rationality. Is it really silly or a parallel understanding of the world? "It's rude to say things like that at the dinner table" Luis Bunuel's films are among the most difficult to understand.

" More Bunuel, doing his wonderful parodies of rigid high class society. It's a free-form, loosely structured variety of tiny tales and musings. "
