Starting Over

Monday, April 02, 2007


Jean Cocteau's "Orphee" is just a stunning visual and symbolic journey of the imagination. The film, set in 1940's Paris tells the tale of a poet, Orphee, famous but stuck for ideas, captured under the attention of the Princess/Death, leading to both him and his wife entering and escaping the Underworld. Beautifully shot and acted it was a delight for all the senses and the imagery sticks and returns post-viewing.
"Orphee" is a true classic and I'm so pleased to have seen it.
