El fantasma de la libertad is Spanish film director Luis Buñuel’s most surrealistic feature film. The film is a series of episodes that are intertwined with each other through a character or a story. Like the story of some French soldiers visiting the Cathedral of Toledo during the Napoleonic invasion, or when a captain kisses a woman’s statue and knocks down a man’s. Or when an assassin who has killed 18 people is set free. These two are united to create the freest and most creative cinema of Luis Buñuel. Book at this link.
