The 'enfant terrible2's second dip into the Orpheus legend was also his last film, and pretty obscure it is too, unless you're familiar with his earlier work. This time, there's little but recycled imagery to see as Cocteau allows himself to be overwhelmed by a barrage of fantasy and pessimism, eventually giving up on the real world altogether.
