After the golden age of the Mexican film industry, Buñuel started to work in France along with screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière and producer Serge Silberman. During this period, Buñuel directed some of his best-known works.
Carrière’s working relationship with Luis Buñuel (for 19 years) produced six film classics:
- Le journal d’une femme de chambre 1964
- Belle de jour 1967
- La voie lactée 1969
- Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie 1972
- Le fantôme de la liberté 1974
- Cet obscur objet du désir 1977

Les au revoirs de Monsieur Hulot"Demandez-vous d’où vient, à la fin des Vacances de Monsieur Hulot, cette grande tristesse, ce désenchantement démesuré, et vous découvrirez peut-être que c’est du silence. Tout au long du film, les cris des enfants qui jouent accompagnent inévitablement les vues de la plage, et pour la première fois leur silence signifie la fin des vacances."André Bazin, 1953Still: Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot, 1953
