Comedy (1930) 60 minutes ~ Black & White
Alternate Title: Age of Gold
Bunuel's first feature has more of a plot than Un Chien Andalou, but it's still a pure Surrealist film, so this is only a vague outline. A man and a woman are passionately in love with one another, but their attempts to consummate that passion are constantly thwarted, by their families, the Church and bourgeois society. Based on a book by the Marquis de Sade.
