THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE

THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE

Fleeing his fractious relationship with a young Spanish woman, a middle-aged Frenchman regales fellow train passengers with stories of the madness and unpredictability of his former love as the train moves through a Europe wracked by political terrorism and violent death. Buñuel’s final movie is a hymn to the unreliability of memory, the instability of human relationships, and the random nature of life. Print courtesy of the National Film and Sound Archive.
