L'AGE D'OR (THE GOLDEN AGE) LUIS BUNUEL 1930
L’Age D’or (1930)
The second film by Bunuel was to be constructed in the same way as Un Chien Andalou but after a couple of writing sessions Bunuel and Dali fell out with each other and Bunuel wrote the final script by himself the only scene contributed by Dali is the scene of the statue of Christ with a loaf of bread on its head Bunuel described the film as having something to offend everybody. He was right the film was banned for fifty years after riots at the first screening. The inclusion of a character resembling Christ as one of the libertines from Sade’s 120 Days Of Sodom being a prime target for critics.
