"Les Enfants Terrible"
Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville
A lyrical treatment of
Jean Cocteau's perverse tribute to rebellious adolescence. Made in 1949, even today it is
one of the most electrifying confrontations of normality by abnormality in the cinema.
Paul (Edouard Dermithe) and Elisabeth (Nicole Stephane) are born into such extreme wealth
that they are immune to the confines and limits of the real world. Their innocence leads
them to self-destruction and to crime. Jean Cocteau's claustrophobic drama is brought to
the screen by the great Jean-Pierre Melville in this perverse story of love, death and
incest. French with English subtitles.
