Cert: 12A Year: 1950 Length: 95 mins Language: French
A famous poet is trapped between real and imaginary worlds as he becomes infatuated with the Angel of Death.
Autobiography mingles with classical mythology against a background of post-war France. This fine new print from the BFI revives Cocteau's ingenious theatrical stage-sets, and enhances the film's dream-like, uncanny atmosphere conjured up by the still remarkably persuasive visual effects.
