Foreign Film Series: The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie
Mount Marty College is pleased to announce the Sunday, November 13 Gregorian Club Foreign Film, “The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie.”
This will be a 4:00 film shown at the Sacred Heart Monastery with a pot luck dinner to follow.
In Luis Bunuel's deliciously satiric, Oscar-winning masterpiece, an upper-class sextet (Fernando Rey, Paul Frankeur, Delphine Seyrig, Stephane Audran, Bulle Ogier and Jean-Pierre Cassel) sits down to dinner but never eats, their attempts repeatedly thwarted by a vaudevillian mixture of events both actual and imagined. Perhaps his greatest film, Bunuel's absurdist view of the upper class is a timeless satire about consumerism and class privilege. Director: Luis Bunuel (1972)
Foreign film enthusiasts are invited to join Mount Marty College’s Gregorian Club for the free Sunday afternoon film showings. Films begin at 2:00 p.m. in the Scholastica Learning Center, Room 108 on the Mount Marty College campus.
