Luis Buñuel
His Colleague: ‘Working with Buñuel Was Living with Buñuel’

French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière talks about his experience working with director Luis Buñuel on the 1972 surrealist film, “The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie”–which was re-released in the United Kingdom in 2012. Carrière mentions how coincidentally, on the day the two of them came up with the title of the movie, the French New Wave director, Jean-Luc Godard, passed away. Carrière goes into how French filmmaker Jacques Tati got his foot in the door of cinema before he worked with Buñuel. He remembers how Buñuel’s first question to him was if he drank and enjoyed wine as a means to find common ground with him before deciding to work with Carrière.
