The essentials

Making lists is an activity moviegoers are fond of. Every year, the same ritual: compilation of the ten best films, with comparative analyses, debates, heated discussions. But what about the ultimate list of the most outstanding films in the history of cinema? That is to say, those films that must be seen, those that have forever transformed the art of cinema, but also our way of seeing a culture, of understanding the world as well as our own lives? This program aims to tackle this challenge with nearly eighty films, produced between 1916 and 1960, while waiting for your lists!

Un chien andalou by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí

[...] not to accept any idea, any image that could give rise to a rational, psychological or cultural explanation. To open all the doors to the irrational. To welcome only the images that struck us, without trying to know why.

L'âge d'or by Luis Buñuel

After having compared it to an American film (for the technique, no doubt), Dali, whose name I kept in the credits, wrote later what were [his] intentions, in composing the script: to expose the ignoble mechanisms of the present society. For me it was also - and above all - a film of crazy love [...].
