Les parents terribles 10/16/18

The Cohen Film Collection

Jean Cocteau’s film work wasn’t limited to fairy tales and art-house fantasies; this adaptation of his hit play shows us fine theater at its best. A family is a tangle of not-quite-normal relationships that reach an impasse when the emotionally spoiled son seeks to marry — a woman his father already knows. The cast bears repeating: Jean Marais, Josette Day, Yvonne de Bray, Marcel AndrĂ©, Gabrielle Dorziat. On Blu-ray from The Cohen Group.
