Un chien andalou [1929]

Luis Buñuel, one of the best cineasts of the 20th century. Salvador Dalí, one of the best painters of the 20th century. What can you get from mixing the dreams of two geniuslike artists where the folly is scattered everywhere? The answer: Un chien andalou.

Even those who do not like Buñuel's Un chien andalou will probably never forget it once they see it.

Describing Un chien andalou is difficult because the film has no "plot" in the strict sense of the word. American film critic Roger Ebert called Un chien andalou:
the most famous short film ever made, and anyone halfway interested in the cinema sees it sooner or later, usually several times.

The birth of the original idea took place in December 1928, in Cadaquès. Buñuel remembers the conversation between him and Dalí:
Dalí me dit: Moi, cette nuit, j’ai rêvé que des fourmis pullulaient dans ma main.
Et moi: Eh bien! Moi, j’ai rêvé qu’on tranchait l’oeil de quelqu’un.

Un chien andalou Is a film that you can either love or hate; there is no other way:

O idee buna; macar mai aminteste cineva de Rosia Montana...
