Several bourgeois friends are planning to get together for dinner. However a succession of highly bizarre events, accepted by the characters even if they are impossible or contradictory, interfere with several attempts to enjoy their planned dining experience. Directed by one of the masters of surrealist cinema, this is a film where the narrative plays an elaborate game with the viewer and where reality and illusion blend imperceptibly.
Academy Award 1973: Best foreign language film, French Syndicate of Cinema Critics: Best film, BAFTA 1974: Best screenplay.
