Rare Film Posters


Original 1978 Re-Release French 47 inch x 63 inch Poster for the 1977 Luis Buñuel comedy THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE, inspired by the book “La femme et le pantin” by Pierre Louÿs and starring Fernando Rey, Carole Bouquet, Angela Molina, Julien Bertheau, Milena Vukotic, Andre Weber, Pierre Pieral, Maria Asquerino, Ellen Bahl and Valerie Blanco.

Part of a series of posters entitled LUIS BUÑUEL: ARCHITECTE DU RÈVE

Luis Buñuel’s final film explodes with eroticism, bringing full circle the director’s lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire. Buñuel regular Fernando Rey plays Mathieu, an urbane widower, tortured by his lust for the elusive Conchita. With subversive flare, Buñuel uses two different actresses in the lead—Carole Bouquet, a sophisticated French beauty, and Angela Molina, a Spanish coquette. That Obscure Object of Desire is a dizzying game of sexual politics punctuated by a terror that harkens back to Buñuel’s brilliant surrealistic beginnings.

The poster is in fine folded condition.
