  1. The lightness with which Buñuel was able to insert the little jokes and knife stabs of surrealism he loved so much is, in fact, divine.
  2. Cinema's greatest surrealist is at the peak of his powers in the last movie of his unparalleled career.

    A gem-like, almost hypnotic, tale of an older man's obsession with a young woman.

    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
