The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is the story of the Ambassador of the small South American country of Miranda who is trafficking in drugs with some French bourgeois friends of his.

In their quest of a lavish feast, the dividing-line between reality and dreams becomes unclear for each guest, leading to complete and utter ridicule.

Metacritic Score

  • 100

    Boston Globe Jay Carr

    Slly, sublime, buoyant mischief that is virtually without parallel in 20th-century art, much less 20th-century film.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Far from seeming dated, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie seems timelier than ever, downright prophetic, for that matter.

  • 67

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    It seems pompous and scattershot now -- a tweaking of privileged European smugness that unfolds with a playful daisy-chain logic but has the tone of a quaint, doddering lecture.
