Synopsis

In Jean Cocteau's updating of the Orpheus myth, Orphee (Jean Marais) is a famous poet whose obsession with a mysterious princess - representing death - and a series of cryptic radio broadcasts causes him to neglect his wife. When she is killed, the guilty poet travels to the Underworld to win her back - and to find the princess. `Orphee' is famous for its dreamlike quality, with images of mirrors and the Nazi occupation of France.
