That Obscure Object of Desire (France-Spain 1977)

Bunuel’s ‘last breath’ (as a film). Casting two actresses in the same role is a surrealist masterstroke (they are the obscure object of Fernando Rey’s bourgeois desire) and the ongoing terrorist attacks in the background were never more relevant. Funny and mischievous. (DVD, 2). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075824/
