" I am letting you into the secret of all secrets, mirrors are gates through which death comes and goes. Moreover if you see your whole life in a mirror you will see death at work as you see bees behind the glass in a hive. "

" Well here's another exercise in the abnormal and surreal, and this time it's French fantasy dude Jean Cocteau's adaption of the Greek legend of the same name. Although the film is effulgent in black and white and features some enchanting special effects and other assorted magical moments, it is quite a self indulgent piece of cinema and tries too hard to be artsy. Sure, you can call Orpheus dazzling and poetic and whatever, but in the end, it's just not a satisfying as a whole. The visual"

"A very good French update of the Greek myth. It's a surreal and inventive fantasy movie which is well worth watching."
