DOSSIER | YOUNG DIRECTORS PROJECT

Montblanc & Salzburg Festival
YDP IV • Jan Mikulášek • Der diskrete Charme der Bourgeoisie

Luis Buñuel’s Oscar-winning film from the 1970s The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (screen-play by Jean-Claude Carrière) provides the springboard for this incisive comedy of social manners and contemporary mores. A group of well-heeled individuals gather together to enjoy a luxurious meal but find themselves repeatedly frustrated for a variety of reasons ranging from the bizarre to the mundane.

Influenced by slapstick as well as the surreal, director Jan Mikulášek assembles a sequence of remarkable scenes of appetite and desperation, distinguished by bold images and no-holds-barred ensemble acting.
