Orpheus (Orphée)

Orpheus (Orphée)

The centrepiece of his Orphic trilogy, Cocteau interprets the Greek myth as a journey into the unconscious, a personal story of a poet’s own ability to tell truth, to charm, to inspire. Told through innovative in-camera trickery, the descent into hell is a remarkable trip.
