Pair of films by French poet, novelist, dramatist and artist Jean Cocteau bookending his film career: 'Un Sang D'Un Poete' (1930) is his debut and a surrealist classic in which the action begins with a young poet sketching faces. The mouth of one of the sketches comes to life, becomes affixed to the poet's hand, and is then wiped from the hand onto a statue. The poet then flees into a mirror and a series of adventures in an alarming fantasy world. 'Le Testament D'Orphee' (1959) is the personal, final film from Cocteau who stars as the poet, wandering through a dream world populated with figures and motifs from his earlier works. Features an all-star cast, including the likes of Charles Aznavour, Yul Brynner and Pablo Picasso.
