Synopsis: 

In an affluent Mexico City manor, well-heeled party guests arrive just as the servants, somehow intuiting disaster, quietly evacuate. At some point everyone present will suddenly feel incapable of leaving, hostage to some unknown force. One of legendary director Luis Buñuel’s most iconic works, this ingenious satire is a class-conscious, dreamlike study of unfulfilled appetites.
