The opening scene will make you squirm.
An incredible film - simply because of its age and the geniuses behind it.
What does it all mean? Possibly nothing but that seems highly improbable - it is utterly amazing that imagination like this was totally ignored by Hollywood.
It is definitive, hard evidence that supports the case that European cinema was more advanced, more adventurous, more influential than the pulp that Hollywood was producing at the time.
A surrealistic film with input from Salvador Dalí. Director Luis Buñuel presents stark, surrealistic images including the slitting open of a woman's eye and a dead horse being pulled along on top of a piano. A mysterious film open to interpretations ranging from deep to it all meaning absolutely nothing. It is certain that this short (17 minute) film presented something new in the cinema of its day.
