  • Bunuel makes the characters look snobby and a bit stupid, but I don't think his main intent was to make the Bourgeoisie look silly

      The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is probably the one film most people remember the director Luis Bunuel for, but actually, The exterminating angel tells a very similar story and was made about ten years earlier by Bunuel. It tells the story of a group of rich people who join together to have a dinner.

      For


      some reason, these people can not get out of the building they’re in afterwards, and here lies the whole climax of the story which leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

      Countless questions appear in my head when I see this but no answers.

      Why are the people trapped inside the house and what is causing ...


      • this? Bunuel makes the characters look snobby and a bit stupid, but I don’t think his main intent was to make the Bourgeoisie look silly.

        Instead his idea was to tell something fundamental about human beings, and he does it with a lot of wits and humor.

        But as mentioned, there are no answers here, only

        questions.

        The audience is completely left out to think for themselves, and that is a proof of great art in any form.

        Something that makes you think about life is beyond all value.

        The exterminating angel is in my opinion one of Bunuel’s finest and most interesting films, and also one of the greatest films of all time.
