Synopsis:
Jean Cocteau was not only a director but also an artist, poet, playwright and novelist. He was widely regarded as one of the most pioneering and important avant-garde directors cinema has produced. Though often described as a poet first and foremost, Cocteau's films were also infused with the phantasmorgorical surrealist imagery and rich symbolism characteristic of all his work. Jean Cocteau gave the cinema a truly abstract piece of work as his swansong, in which the mind of a poet (played by Cocteau himself) takes control of reality, twisting and re-moulding it until it bears not the slightest resemblance to reality as we know it in real life.
