Plot: One of Luis Buñuel's finest films, filled with humor, political barbs and wildly strange events.
Nobile, an upper-class gentleman, has invited a group of friends to his home for a post-opera dinner. But even before the guests arrive, something bizarre happens: all the servants are seized by an irresistible compulsion to walk out.
And worse is yet to come: at the hour when everyone should depart, for some inexplicable reason no one can leave Nobile's drawing room. Although no physical barriers prevent them from exiting, they all halt at the door and turn back.
As the food and water run out, and tensions rise, the group begins to argue amongst themselves... and soon they've abandoned any pretense of "good breeding" and "polite behavior". It's every man for himself and only the strongest survive.
