Buñuel's first film, the surrealistic masterpiece Un Chien Andalou, was based after an exchange of dreams with co-writer Salvador Dali. This tale of desire, opening innocuously enough with the familiar words “Once Upon A Time”, contains one of the most memorable scenes in cinema history—a razor blade slashing an eyeball. Made in Paris in 1929, it aims to provoke rather than please its audience.
