In Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, a bunch of upperclass people could never sit down to a quiet dinner. In That Obscure Object, a bourgeois gentleman just can't seem to get it on with a woman who oddly appears in two guises. Baffling In Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, a bunch of upperclass people could never sit down to a quiet dinner. In That Obscure Object, a bourgeois gentleman just can't seem to get it on with a woman who oddly appears in two guises. Baffling and frustrating but then so is lust and love, I guess. The key word is not so much 'woman' or 'love' but 'object' and 'desire' which can take on endless manifestations in the fertile mind of male sexual psyche. Collapse

It's a very very good movie. It makes you very tense at times. Fernando Rey is amazing and so are the two actresses who play CONCHITA. An interesting twist on the novel. Criterion has almost (if not, ever) let me down.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The "symbolic" bloody sheet scene at the end, simply represents the sheet on which Conchita loses her virginity to Mateo... His ultimate conquest! He is hypnotized seeing a woman in a window trying to sew it back together signifying sewing Conchita's hymen back together. Conchita becomes irate realizing this "war" between them will start all over again. Bomb: end of a relationship. Expand
