Cocteau's Orphee

I'm sick of CGI; give me good old handmade special effects.

There's more magic in a single frame of this movie than in the whole Potter franchise thus far.

Love the talking Rolls Royce. So that's where they got the idea for Knight Rider!

L'oiseau chante avec ses doights.

What is it with me and dead girls? The last movie female I fell in love with was Moaning Myrtle. Now I'm in love with Maria Casares.

Cocteau may have been gay, but surely he was in love with Maria too?

Me, him, the camera: we all love Maria Casares.
