Review of The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie. (1972)
A comedy of manners poking fun at the bourgeoisie, apathetic to and complicit in the rise of communism and other evils.
The constant interruptions to social feastings offer depth to otherwise meaningless, banal lives. Reality and truth lies beneath beautiful facades in comical ways, yet are continuously ignored, avoided or brushed away by the constant move toward the next unsatisfying social occasion.
A fictional true story with which we can all identify. We can laugh at ourselves or wake up to the truth and do something about it or we can do both.
Sadly funny, made me laugh whilst making me hungry at the same time, literally!
