Orphée

95 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA | 1950 | dir. Jean Cocteau, with Jean Marais, François Périer, María Casares, Marie Déa, Juliette Gréco | new print

Cocteau’s gift for mixing real and imaginary worlds finds its richest expression in this daring update of the Orpheus myth. Jean Marais’ Orphée is a handsome and successful poet whose milieu is the café life of post-war Saint Germain-des-Prés. But his quest for inspiration takes him on a perilous journey into the land of the dead, with the risk of losing all he holds dear.
