That Obscure Object Of Desire


Luis Buñuel's swansong masterpiece

Every bit as subversive and disruptive as his debut Un Chien Andalou (1929), this swansong masterpiece from Luis Buñuel is the summation of a 48-year obsession with eroticism, jealousy and violence.

Fernando Rey’s horny widower is the bourgeois schmuck stripped of his civility, his passion fanned and doused by a 19-year-old maid (played by Carole Bouquet and Ángela Molina).

Interviews with the female leads and Buñuel regulars Jean-Claude Carrière and  Edmond Richard are supplemented by a handsome booklet.
