Nicole Stephane, Edouard Dhermitte, Jacques Bernard.
The Melville/Cocteau collaboration creates a magical film which captures the visual and textual elements of Cocteau's work with stunning accuracy. Music by Bach and Vivaldi, a mesmeric narration and vivid monochrome photography add subtle, menacing beauty to the inexorable tale of defiance, which unfolds like Greek tragedy and portrays youth in its most decadent and macabre form.
Melville's lucid interpretation of Cocteau's poetic vision achieved a lightness of touch much admired by the writer
