3 things about Luis Buñuel’s THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie [1972]

1. “Did you see that? That was precisely not the way to drink a dry martini.”
“You’re being hard on Maurice,” she protests. “He’s a commoner. He’s uneducated.”
Then Don Rafael injects, “No system can give the masses the proper social graces. But you know me, I’m not a reactionary.”
2. After the bishop shoots the dying man, he vanishes from the movie.
3. The street is a set, painted flats for storefronts. We hear traffic noises and an endlessly pealing bell.
