(20/01/07) – Cinéastes de notre temps was shown on French television on 04 April, 1964 and is one of most detailed and revealing interviews with Luis Buñuel currently available online. For those people who have read his autobiography, My Last Breath, it works as an insightful compliment as this televisual profile confirms many of the facts and ideas Buñuel charmingly served in his famous book. Edited with a subtly wry sense of humour, the documentary includes English subtitles and plenty of footage of the great artist, who comes across as a very sweet and peculiar human being. No major revelations on offer, but it provides the rare pleasure of seeing Bunuel talk.
The National Film Theatre in London is currently presenting a season of Luis Buñuel´s films that will go on until the end of February.
