Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie: The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972)

Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie is a fantastic film. It reminds me of a Seinfeld episode mixed with a surreal element of dreams. It is also very witty and humorous. This is the first film directed by Luis Bu├▒uel that I have watched and I'm looking forward to watching more of his films in the future. 

Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie is a film that follows a pointless, but humorous plot. It focuses on a group of friends who are trying to have a nice dinner and evening together, however, every single time they get together, something goes awry. The friends, as well as random and unexpected guests, all have dreams and or dreams with in dreams that are related to these dining experiences. 

I absolutely love Seinfeld and I love anything that reminds me of the show. I'd love to watch this film again because it made me laugh so much. I could also imagine myself being involved with some of the dining experiences in real life. Especially when the random, unexpected guests come to interrupt the dinner and end up telling some strange story about their life. I'm always meeting people who decide to tell me something terrible about their life, a secret, or something extremely strange. I am an understanding person and it must show because of the confessions random people have told me. I suppose that's a nice quality to have, but wow, I've heard some crazy confessions in my life so far. I like hearing them though, they're pretty interesting!

Watch The Exterminating Angel next since Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie was basically a remake of it. One dinner party except they can't leave it even when they try.
