Story:
After a lavish dinner party, the guests find themselves mysteriously unable to leave the room… and over the next few days all the elaborate pretenses and facades that they’ve built up by virtue of their position in society collapse completely as they become reduced to living like animals…

Societal etiquette devolves into depravity in Luis Buñuel’s existential comedy, effectively playing the absurdity of civilization for mordant laughs.
