Definitely a challenging film; it is not for everyone. It may be described as somewhat surreal, obscure, unconventional, highly artistic, complex and difficult. It is however, quite a film for those who see film as a higher form of artistic expression, more like poetry itself; appreciated more for its beauty and expression than its narrative. In all its rawness and imperfection remains fascinating.
This picture is interesting to look act... it is a work of art...almost dream like, but it only goes so far... all in all I enjoyed watching the imagination of the director. I think there are better pictures from cocteau. I can't help but think that maybe just maybe it would have been different if it was a silent picture... but who knows?
