L’Âge d’Or (1930, Gaston Modot, Lya Lys)

Published

No easily identifiable narrative can be found in Bunuel’s classic Surrealist film L’Âge d’Or, which is still shocking all these years after it was made.

A series of episodes centered around the theme of fanatical love is the thread that ties the whole together, but anyone attempting to attach specific meanings to the film will be disappointed .

The film like the Surrealist paintings to which it is akin, relies on its irrational juxtaposition of images to suggest the dream state or the subconscious.

A fascinating example of nontraditional, non-narrative filmmaking.
