Synopsis:

The guests at an upper-class dinner party find themselves unable to leave.

Curator’s sight:

This is one of the films that has marked my imagination the most, as well as that of a lot of people around the world. The story of a group of high-society friends invited to a mansion for dinner and finding themselves inexplicably unable to leave is closely related to the meaning of our existence, of that we define community, and of its survival, powerfully pointing out the urgence and the importance, today more than ever, of listen and pay attention to voices, fears and desires coming from our subconscious.
