Six upper-class people sit down to a dinner that is continually delayed, their attempts to eat thwarted by events both real and imagined, from terrorist attacks to ghostly apparitions. In their quest for a lavish feast, the line between reality and dreams becomes unclear, and all hell breaks loose.

MUBI's take

What secrets lurk inside a group of wealthy sophisticates who only want a nice, pleasant dinner party? Luis Buñuel’s Oscar®-winning classic is a fiendishly witty comedy bouncing through reality, dreams, faith, sex, and revolution with the lightest, cheekiest touch. Six guests, endless possibilities!
