Superb Film - Haunting,
By A Customer
This review is from: Orphee  [DVD] (DVD)
Excellent film which is of the myth of the man who could not look at his wife as the price for getting her back from the dead, but set in 1949/50 France. The dead are taken to the underworld by the mysterious lady, and the motorbile riders - very evocative post WW2 treatment - and the special effects are stunning - all done without the benefit of modern techniques. I saw it at the cinema at a special showing recently (at the great Aldeburgh Cinema) and had only been able to source a dvd in Brazil (bizarre but true), and so seing this released in the UK is very welcome.
