Worthy of the master
5 September 2002 | by Maxy-2See all my reviews

I had never heard of Luis Bunuel having a son who was a film maker, but this film is easily worthy of the master. It has some of his father's regulars and Catherine Deneuve's performance is creepily offhand, as is Fernando Rey's. It has the usual surrealistic sight gags but also has a teasing motif about a trompe l'oeil painting which pays off beautifully at the end. It's also somewhat reminiscent of Alain Robbe-Grillet's La belle captive. Can't imagine why I hadn't heard of Juan Bunuel before this.
