Studiocanal has announced the release of a stunning new 50th anniversary 4K restoration of Luis Buñuel’s multi award winning surrealist satire, THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE, which will be available to own on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and 4K Ultra HD for the very first time on 20th June 2022.
This virtually plotless tale of six middle-class guests and their interrupted attempts to have a meal together stars Fernando Rey, Paul Frankeur, Delphine Seyrig, Bulle Ogier Stéphane Audran and Jean-Pierre Cassel, and was the recipient of the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar as well as two BAFTA awards on its release in 1972.
Buñuel’s humorous satire depicts a group of friends – the Thévenots, the Sénéchals, Madame Thévenot’s younger sister Florence and Latin American ambassador Don Rafael Acosta – make repeated attempts to dine together, but are constantly frustrated by bizarre interruptions, including a series of dreams.
The new 4k restoration of THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE will also screen in selected cinemas from June 2022.
