testament to the unique genius of jean cocteau

A magnificent movie (1959-1960) by Jean Cocteau (1889-1963). Ideally, you’ll watch it straight after his Orphée(1950), another mindblowing masterwork on us humans & the mystery of death. Hey and do check that brilliant book by Lucien Clergue: ISBN 0670892580 (2001 E) / 9782742745012 (2003 F)!

Tip: do listen to “Le cinématographe”, an excerpt from the “Jean Cocteau Journal Sonore Du Testament d’Orphée Par Roger Pillaudin” 2cd (Archives Sonores INA – Les Grandes Heures – Compacts Radio France 1998-05). Pillaudin’s audio journal was first broadcast on France 1 radio between 1960-01-06 and 1960-02-10.
