This movie is a must see for all the people who love real much the French cinema, and also the cinema of the magnificent Jean Cocteau, one of my favorite writers. In this movie Cocteau not direct, not write, not produce anything, but he's an actor, and what an actor! In fact, he do the role of the great french poet and writer Alfred de Mussey, closed in his office and write his magical poetry, as Cocteau also do in his great work as a poet and writer. A masterpiece of the French cinema, and also of the magnificent, always great Cocteau. May he rest in peace.
