"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

On y reconnaît l'élégance, la prestesse, la souplesse, la désinvolture de Cocteau."
