“With an effortlessness matched by no other director today, Buñuel creates a vision of a world as logical as a theorem, as mysterious as a dream, and as funny as a vaudeville gag.” - Vincent Canby, New York Times

“A mature commentary on the invisible line between passion and absurdity - erotic, political, and religious.” - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

Deception, duplicity, sexual frustration - ain’t love grand? Buñuel’s protagonist Mathieu (Fernando Rey) recounts his romantic triumphs and tribulations.
