In einem Künstleratelier erwacht eine Statue zum Leben. Die Lippen des androgynen Gesichts berühren die Hand des Künstlers. Letzterer taucht auf Anweisung der Statue in einen Spiegel ein. Jean Cocteau (geb. am 5. Juli 1889 in Maisons-Lafitte bei Paris - gest. 1963) beginnt mit 16 Jahren die Pariser Künstlerkreise zu frequentieren. 1909 gründet er zusammen mit Maurice Rostand und Francois Bernouard die Lyrikzeitschrift "Sheherazade" und veröffentlich die Gedichtsammlung "La Lampe d'Aladin" aus eigener Feder. In den Jahren bis zu seinem Tod verkehrt er mit den Malern, Dichtern und Musikern des Montparnasse-Viertels, darunter Apollinaire, Max Jacob, Picasso, Erik Satie, Diaghilew, Strawinski, Modigliani und Picasso. Opiumgenuss beflügelt seine Phantasie, doch wiederholt versucht er, von dieser Droge loszukommen. Der künstlerisch vielseitige Cocteau betätigt sich als Maler, Dichter und Filmemacher. Für das Theater schreibt er u. a.: "Thomas l'imposteur", "Les Enfants terribles", "Les Parents Terribles", "L'Eternel retour" und "L'Aigle a deux tetes". Sein größter Filmerfolg ist "La Belle et la bete", das mehr als 4 Millionen Zuschauer anlockt. 1955 wird er Mitglied der Academie Francaise. Von 1953 bis 1954 ist er Präsident der Jury bei den Filmfestspielen in Cannes, 1957 Ehrenpräsident der Filmfestspiele
