The Specter of Freedom

The Specter of Freedom

(Le Fantôme de la liberté)

Director Luis Buñuel

An illogical series of episodes, framed by scenes of repression in which cries of "Down with liberty" are heard. The curious collection includes a bourgeois couple who finds certain photos of monuments in Paris "repugnant", a nurse who spends an evening at a strange inn, the search for a little girl who has never really been lost and a killer who is condemned to death and immediately set free while the corpse of his sister telephones the local chief of police... With a snap of the fingers reality disappears, turning conventional behavior upside-down.
