El ángel exterminador

Back to listing
L’Âge d’Or (1930) notwithstanding, The Exterminating Angel, which won at Cannes in 1962, is perhaps the Buñuel film that best captures the spirit of Surrealism. This rebuke of high society and the Church tells the story of a bourgeois party gone awry. Guests find themselves locked in the drawing room and, with no servants to wait on them, are forced to stay there for several days.
