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.

Galardonado en Cannes en 1962, El ángel exterminador es junto con La edad de oro (1930) la película más surrealista de Buñuel. Esta crónica de una cena de gala que acaba mal, es una fuerte crítica a la alta sociedad y a la Iglesia: un matrimonio burgués invita a su mansión en Ciudad de México a un grupo de convidados que no logra salir del salón, donde permanece encerrado sin los sirvientes durante varios días.
