The Melbourne Cinémathèque & ACMI present
Le Testament D'Orphée
Testament of Orpheus
Mixing life and death, present and future, nightmare and dream; the third part of Cocteau’s 'Orphic trilogy' is a summation of the artist’s works and preoccupations.
Cocteau as The Poet wanders weightlessly through a dream landscape peopled by his friends, collaborators, characters and images from his films, including María Casares, Jean Marais, Pablo Picasso, Françoise Sagan, Charles Aznavour, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Brigitte Bardot, Edouard Dermithe and Yul Brynner.
