EXTERMINATING ANGEL

EXTERMINATING ANGEL

A dinner party becomes a claustrophobic nightmare for the guests who find themselves unable to leave – not for any physical reason, but because of the unwritten rules of social propriety. A darkly funny observation of how civilised behaviour breaks down in the face of extreme circumstance, Buñuel’s return to Mexico after the disastrous Spanish response to Viridiana produced one of his funniest films.
