Jean Cocteau’s
TESTAMENT OF ORPHEUS

3:40   9:10

Thursday, April 25

(1960) “A wry, self-conscious re-examination of a lifetime’s obsessions, with Cocteau playing himself at the center of the mythology that he created in countless books, plays, films and paintings. This mythology yields a torrent of familiar characters, situations, effects and images, all of them quoted in a spirit of bewilderment and growing disillusionment: Cocteau finally disappears into his fictional world, leaving the real world to a noisy new generation.” – Tony Rayns, Time Out. 35mm print courtesy French Cultural Services. Approx. 79 min.

Part of Jean Cocteau’s Orphic Trilogy.
