Winner of the Best Picture at Cannes, 1951, this film is loved for its innovative use of props and settings. Shot in post-war landscape, Orphee (Orpheus in English) is testament to Cocteau's genius for chaos and irreverent style. Death, for instance, rides around in a Rolls-Royce, with motorcycle escorts.

Orphee is a poet who has caught the fancy of the Grim Reaper, but she (Death) loves him too much to take him away. Jean Marais plays Orpheus. A couple of the film's more interesting sequences involve a car-radio that has the power to mesmerise and a trick mirror that is actually a thousand-pound tub of mercury.

Orphee will be screened first at Sarathi Studio, and the next day (26th March) at the Gokak Auditorium in CIEFL. For more details on the film and other Cocteau classics please contact the Alliance Francaise at 2770-0734/35/36.
