Elisabeth is very protective of her teenage brother Paul, who has been injured in a snowball fight at school and has to rest in bed most of the time. The siblings are inseparable, living in the same room, fighting, playing secret games, and rarely leaving the house. Paul's friend, Gerard, often drops by to stay with them. One day Elisabeth brings home Agathe to live with them. She bears a strong resemblance to Dargelos, a schoolboy whom Paul had a crush on and the same boy who injured him.

Jean Cocteau's Orphic trilogy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in French and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1. Jean Cocteau turns the Orpheus legend into a story of a poet and his encounter with death and the middle world. 2. An artist is driven mad by the sight of his own blood and a drawing of a mouth that seems to come to life. The combination sends him off on a series of bizarre adventures that strive to explain how artists become obsessed with their own works. 3. In his last film Cocteau portrays an 18th century poet who travels through time on a quest for divine wisdom. In a mysterious wasteland, he meets several symbolic phantoms that bring about his death and resurrection. The film finished the circle of the journey begun in Blood of a Poet, exploring the torturous relationship between the artist and his creations

"Surrealist Jean Cocteau's retelling of the Greek myth of Orpheus, the musician whose virtuoso gifts charmed all who heard his music from gods to animals, is among the most breathtaking and enigmatic films ever made. Translated from the Arcadian countryside to Paris' Left Bank in the 1950s, Orpheus (Jean Marais) is now a renowned poet past his prime. When the hot young thing on the poetry scene is killed before his eyes, Orpheus comes face to face with Death? in the guise of a Gothic dominatrix? and her leather-clad biker angels. But then Death fingers his wife Eurydice, and Orpheus must venture into her Underworld beyond the mirror to retrieve her."--Container

"Pour Jean Cocteau : "Les personnages de Thomas l'Imposteur ne pouvaient se réunir que dans le vide du début de la guerre. Ce sont les mouches irisées du charnier." Pour Jean-Claude Bory : "Thomas l'Imposteur de Georges Franju c'est la dénonciation d'une societé qui goûte dans la guerre des autres un remède inespéré contre l'ennui. On y reconnaît l'élégance, la prestesse, la souplesse, la désinvolture de Cocteau."
