Part of BAMcinématek series Buñuel
Directed by Luis Buñuel | 1977

With Fernando Rey, Carole Bouquet, Ángela Molina

“It reminds us of the profound possibilities of film in the hands of someone we now acknowledge to be an authentic master.”
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

Buñuel’s final masterwork stars his regular leading man Fernando Rey as a gentleman driven to absurd extremes by his obsession with a fickle flamenco dancer (ingeniously played by two actresses: Bouquet, embodying cool sophistication, and Molina, conveying carnal sexuality). Meanwhile, terrorism lingers ever-present in the background, culminating the director’s career-long exploration of the link between sex and revolutionary violence.
