  Since it runs on a small street in the Open through the countryside, a group of three women and three men of high society, contends that the unit as well as in some situations this film by Luis Buñuel in the year 1972. This powerful image, which was slightly altered three times as the subject will appear in the film, is an example of the seemingly aimless, dense atmosphere of elegant lace-up against the unreflective Sorg ruthlessness of a privileged middle-class firm, which The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, with gentle humor and sharp . presents

Basically, they are constantly on the road to a neat, sociable feast at a small meeting, the elegant Ambassador of Miranda (Fernando Rey), the young Florence (Bulle Ogier) and the two couples Thevenot (Delphine Seyrig and Paul Frankeur) and Sénéchal (Stéphane Audran and Jean-Pierre Cassel).
