CGiii Comment

Much lauded and very inventive.......but, it's a hard task to see it through to the end......simply because it's so under-whelming and ham-acted by Cocteau's ex and current lovers.

Keeping it in the family is rife in the film industry......here, the required talent is sadly lacking.

Definitely, made for and appreciated by a film elite.

Not for general consumption.
