Six members of the much-maligned titular social class attempt to have dinner together. Wandering through a dreamlike landscape tethered loosely to reality, the sextet are bounced around episodic crises and surrealist set-pieces as an escalating series of genuine and imagined interventions obstruct the gathering. Outrageous, searing and occasionally blasphemous, Buñuel’s brilliant satire remains gleefully anarchic.
