Greek mythology adapted to the 20th century anyone? Here's a tale of love and loss, of one of Greece's most legendary poet-musician.

The Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad, in association with the Hyderabad Film Club and the French Embassy in India, is screening a French film, Orpheus, on 14th September, at Sarathi Studios. Directed by Jean Cocteau, the film has Jean Marais, Francois Perier Maria Casares and Marie Dea playing the main characters.

Set in contemporary Paris, this 1950 movie is a variation of the classic Greek myth of Orpheus. At the Cafe des Poetes, a brawl is staged by acolytes of the Princess (Casares), and the young poet Cegeste (Edouard Dermithe), a rival of Orpheus, is killed.

Cegeste's body is taken to the Princess's car by her associates, and Orpheus (Marais) is asked to accompany them as a witness. Heurtebise (Perier), her chauffeur, entertains unrequited love for Orpheus's wife Eurydice (Marie Dea).

Eurydice is killed by the Princess's henchmen, and Orpheus goes after her into the Underworld. Although they have become dangerously entangled, the Princess sends Orpheus back out of the underworld, to carry on his life with Eurydice, but he cannot look at her or she will die.

Entry is free. Please contact the Alliance Francaise at 2770-0734/2770-0736 or Bh S S Prakash Reddy of the Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841/93910-20243 for further details.
