Exploring the themes that would sustain his entire career, Bunuel mercilessly pillories the bourgeoisie, with virtually every scene touching on the conflict between sexual desire and religious and political repression. The satire is both erotic and hilarious and still has the power to provoke.
Bunuel's fingerprints are all over the script which makes one wonder just how much Dali contributed.
