Orpheus (1950)

Written and directed by Jean Cocteau, this allegorical film retells the legend of Orpheus in a contemporary setting. Orphee is a successful Parisian poet, whom--despite popular acclaim--feels isolated and uninspired. When his wife Eurydice is stricken down by leather-clad bikers, he pursues them into the underworld, where he falls into a romantic entanglement with the dark-haired beauty Death. Stunning cinematography and surrealist flairs punctuate this beautiful, hypnotic masterpiece.

Starring: Jean Marais, François Périer, María Casares, Marie Déa, Juliette Gréco, Edouard Dermithe
Director: Jean Cocteau
