France 1948, 102 minutes, B&W
Dir. Jean-Pierre Melville
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [PG]

Topics: Arthouse.


Aroview: A poetic drama-fantasy from the pen of Jean Cocteau (who also directed several scenes), that centres round the narcissistic, self-destroying bond between an adolescent brother and sister (Edouard Dermithe and Nicole Stephane). Taking place in a domestic, stylised netherworld, this has many elegant filmic touches.
