Plot: A dreamlike, surrealistic film that playfully looks at politics, religion and sex.

The film offers tantalizing fragments of narrative that it explores briefly and then leaves behind: a child accepts some strange photographs from an unsavory character in a playground -- only the images aren't quite what one would expect; a nurse spends the night at an inn and meets some very bizarre priests; a sniper ascends a glistening new French skyscraper and shoots at the crowds below, only to become a celebrity, not a pariah; and tearful parents beg the police to find their missing child -- who's beside them the whole time insisting she's not lost. Bunuel attacks society's false pretensions to freedom, and its distorted ideas of liberty and religion in this crazy, off- beat comedy that goes from high wit to groundling guffaws.
