Anthology Film Archives presents Jean Cocteau's 1950 film Orpheus starring Jean Marais. This film is the central part of Cocteau's Orphic Trilogy.

Orpheus and Eurydice, with Death waiting on the corner. Cocteau said, “”Orpheus could only exist on the screen. A drama of the visible and the invisible, ORPHEUS’s Death is like a spy who falls in love with the person being spied upon. The myth of immortality.

Orphee is a poet who becomes obsessed with Death (the Princess). They fall in love. Orphee's wife, Eurydice, is killed by the Princess' henchmen and Orphee goes after her into the Underworld. Although they have become dangerously entangled, the Princess sends Orphee back out of the Underworld, to carry on his life with Eurydice.
