The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is an avant-garde classic from 1972. It was directed by the influential Luis Bunel, a grand master of early cinema. The film is difficult and symbolic. Although there is a malign sense of humor undercutting nearly every scene, the action is hard to follow and scenes do not appear to fit together in any traditional sense. Bunel meant the movie as a critique of the manners of the upper class, their parochial violence and their casual brutality. The scene where the rich man shoots the street vendor's toys has become emblematic of the film as a whole.
