That Obscure Object of Desire1977

  • 4.2
Luis Buñuel's final film explodes with eroticism, bringing full circle to the director's lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire. Buñuel regular Fernando Rey plays Matthieu, an urbane widower, tortured by his lust for the elusive Conchita. With subversive flare, Buñuel uses two different actresses in the lead role- Carole Bouquet, a sophisticated French beauty and Angela Molina, a Spanish coquette. Drawn from Pierre Louys' 1898 novel, La Femme et le Pantin, THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE is a dizzying game of sexual politics punctuated by a terror that harkens back to Buñuel's brilliant surrealistic beginnings.
