Un Chien Andalou, Luis Bunuel 1929
In 1929 Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali showed the finished film of Un Chien Andalou to Louis Aragon and Paul Eluard. In turn Aragon passed on the word to Andre Breton and Breton declared that the first true surrealist film had been made. This success enabled Bunuel and Dali to become members of the Surrealists.
This is The first film made by Luis Bunuel and in many ways it remains his best known , simply because it is his most unusual and unapproachable work. Bunuel and Dali created the script from a series of dreams strung together in such a way that no two scenes would have any logical continuity. This simple fact still baffles critics today as they search for meaning in this incredible film.
Bunuel’s scene of a woman's eye being slit by a razor remains one of the most recognizable images in Cinema.
