THE MILKY WAY
The Milky Way (1969) is a deliciously surreal comedy from the master Luis Buñuel (Belle de Jour, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie). Inspired by the picaresque Spanish novels of the sixteenth century, it follows two men (Laurent Terzieff and Paul Frankeur), part tramp, part pilgrim, who are on their way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. On their way they meet a whole assortment of people—some truculent, some violent, and some bizarre; they experience many adventures—some mysterious, some erotic, some even supernatural…a religious odyssey as only Buñuel could conceive.
