That Obscure Object of Desire

A film by Luis Bunuel, director of `The Discrete Charme of (..)` features two actors from the already mentioned film. A man who`s on a train from Seville to Madrid explains to a few other people why he spilled a bucketful of water over a pretty young Spaniard. Basically it`s a very strange love story about a man who knows what he desires but doesn`t really know that he desires only the desire (or something like that). An interesting thing about the film is that the leading female role Conchita is played by two women, and the change of those women every time shows also a change in her behaviour. It`s sad and it`s funny, it`s cynical and it`s romantic. It`s everything I want from a film.
