"... a divine orgy" (Henry Miller)

"Perfection in free cinematic expression." (Ado Kyrou)

More than 80 years on, this masterpiece of cinematic surrealism remains as brilliantly witty and shocking as ever. Uniting the genius of Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali, L'Age d'Or is a uniquely savage blend of visual poetry and social commentary. A sinister yet poignant chronicle of a couple's struggle to consummate their desire – the film was banned and vilified for many years for its subversive eroticism and furious dissection of 'civilised' values.
