  Un chien andalou - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Un chien andalou (An Andalusian Dog in English) is a 16 minute surrealist short film made in France by Luis Buñuel (Writer/Director) and Salvador Dalí in 1929.
The man dragging a piano, donkey and priests has been interpreted as an allegory of man's progress towards his goal being hindered by the baggage of society's conventions that he is forced to bear.
The eyeball being sliced is in fact a cow's eye which was placed into an open socket of an actress missing her original eye.

It is as though she were enthralled by the echoes of distant religious music; perhaps music she heard in her earliest childhood.

This ceremony is interrupted by the discovery of a couple noisily enjoying an amorous clinch, writhing fully clothed on a mud-bank.
He delights in going out of his way to attack a beetle (crushed underfoot), a small dog (hoofed into the air), a blind man (felled with a Cantona-style kick to the chest) and even his lover's elderly mama (punched in the face after she accidentally spills some drink onto his hand).
His antics are all the more amusing when we discover that he's been selected by the government as a "goodwill ambassador" - we see the catastrophic wider consequences of this ill-advised appointment via stock footage featuring apocalyptic disasters which engulf the hapless populace.

 Venice 2000 REVIEW: 'Andalusian Dog, Gatlif's 'Vengo'
Even when Gatlif's flamenco revenge drama threatened to blow away in the hot southern Mediterranean wind--no thanks to its wisp of a plot--the half-dozen musical numbers that pepper the vibrant but vapid French-Spanish co-production were enough to keep even the most jaded festival-goer held in exotic thrall for its brief 90-minute running time.
Gatlif makes an admirable attempt to provide the widest-possible cultural glimpse into the lives of his beloved flamenco-addled Andalusian Gypsies.
He's an adept choreographer of musical performers and he succeeds in capturing the sultry, almost spiritual vibrancy of flamenco music.

 Two Radical Filmmakers: Luis Bunuel and Dziga Vertov
The Andalusian Dog certainly succeeds at living up to this explanation, as its scenario is not bound by reason, nor does its grotesque imagery comply with the moral or aesthetic standards of the day.
Francisco Arandals synopsis of the film notes several other repulsive images which are obscured in the actual film due to its varying quality such as "two pianos, each bearing the carcase of a donkey and oozing from the lid entrails and excrement," as well as close-ups of armpit hair (61-62).
Other notable images include a man uninvitedly groping at a woman's breasts and then visualizing her as being naked, an androgynous woman poking at a severed hand in the street and subsequently being struck down by a car, and ants crawling from the stigma in a man's hand (Andalusian Dog).

 DVD Talk Review: Un Chien Andalou (The Andalusian Dog)
Un Chien Andalou (The Andalusian Dog) is as much a staple in film studies classes as Citizen Kane - Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali's 1929 collaboration remains the foundation of Surrealist cinema.
As mentioned earlier, Surrealism scholar Stephen Barber conducts an efficient and extremely informative commentary in 16 minutes; he manages to squeeze in an overview of the experimental film movement up to and through Un Chien Andalou as well as offering theories as to the juxtaposition of imagery onscreen.

 The Indiscreet Charms of Luis Buñuel (Luis Bunuel)
He gained attention, even notoriety, with his first film, An Andalusian Dog, a collaboration with fellow Spaniard Salvador Dalí (commemorated in many places in cyberspace and otherwise; one of my favorite sites in both locales is the museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, dedicated to his work and memory).
Buñuel, no matter what else he may be doing, is slicing through an empty image, and although he was a self-proclaimed atheist, he may be doing us, who consider ourselves believers, a favor by forcing us to re-think our cherished images.

 Un Chien Andalou
It "came from an encounter between two dreams." (1) The script was an easy and joyful joint collaboration between Buñuel and Dali (Buñuel would continue to write scripts in collaboration for the rest of his life), and Buñuel shot the film quickly over two weeks on a small budget supplied by his mother.
Dali stated in 1928, of the film's theme: "the pure and correct line of 'conduct' of a human who pursues love through wretched humanitarian, patriotic ideals and the other miserable workings of reality." (4) This seems to be the general perspective of most writers discussing the film.
The most effective manner in which to appreciate the film is to allow the images to seduce, to watch with your eyes and emotions and not to seek an explanation.

 Reviews for Un Chien Andalou (An Andalusian Dog 1929) on MSN Movies
This sixteen-minute cinematic taste of surrealism is definitely an escape from conventional motion picture.
In an irrational string of events, verristic surrealists Dali and Bunuel present eerie images, usually read as symbolisms, that are bound to leave its viewers thirsting for a lucid sense of significance.
It is, however, virtually impossible to provide one definitive explanation for a movie like this, which is created in the name of the queerness of Freudian psychoanalysis.

The lack of food did not discourage excessive wine and sherry consumption; during the precision performance by La Tropa Flamenco, some inebriated guests — including an elderly member of the popsarazzi who flung his archaic Nikon SLR into the crowd — clambered onto the stage in an insurgent effort to join the dancers.
This kind of talk was normally reserved only for the very most cloying-and-annoying (Celine Dion, Jerry Lewis) and has been limited not only to his artistic oeuvre but also to his hairstyle (once frizzily mulleted, now Seacrested) and his woman (Nicolette Sheridan).
Yet the singer is known to millions who have never heard him belt out even a note as the ridiculed object of an indie film construct, much the way Flock of Seagulls is recognized for Samuel L. Jackson's sneering reference in Pulp Fiction.

As memorable as those images are, the granddaddy of cinema surrealism goes back to 1929 to a seventeen-minute collaboration by Salvador Dali and Luis Buñuel called Un Chien Andalou.
Translated, the title means “An Andalusian Dog,” but that won't add insight to one of the most watched silent films of all time.
It must also rank as one of the most studied films in history (at least by film students), and a myriad number of critiques and student papers have espoused various theories about the imagery.

Un Chien Andalou (translated as An Andalusian Dog), yet another mystery as there isn't a dog of any kind in the movie) opens with what has become one of the most famous shots in movie history.
Some will argue that there's no difference between a movie like this and an idiotic Hollywood release without a plot.
