Happy Birthday, Luis Buñuel

Some years ago, I showed an acquaintance of mine Luis Buñuel's Diary of a Chambermaid. She didn't get it. At all. And even though she reckoned herself a film fan, she didn't see what was so special about Buñuel's style, which she regarded as flat and boring. I realized then that true love could never bloom between us. Alas.

Anyway, today is Don Luis's birthday, and to celebrate, here's a short documentary on the director from the 1964 French series, Un Cineaste De Notre Temps. Enjoy.
