Luis Bunuel, father of Surrealist cinema, was terrified of crowds, disliking society as an institution and believing that religion and ideology are simply fronts for selfish interests. He develops these themes in this work, an imaginative allegory on the character of man and the futility of the upper classes.

After a lavish dinner party in a stately mansion, the guests find themselves mysteriously unable to leave the room. As the days pass the elaborate pretences and facades that they've built up by virtue of their position in society collapse completely as they become reduced to living like animals to survive.
