Abstract

The confrontation between France and Spain in the Napoleonic period imaged in the prologue to Luis Buñuel's Phantom of Liberty (1974) introduces themes explored throughout the film: the cultural and historical forces that shape national identity, the contradictory nature of freedom, the connection between political and psychological realities (Oedipal conflicts both), and the enduring presence of Francisco Goya.
