Les Enfants Terribles Les Enfants Terribles

a love story by Jean Cocteau

Elisabeth (Nicole Stéphane) and her brother Paul (Edouard Dermithe) live isolated from much of the world after Paul is injured in a snowball fight. As a coping mechanism, the two conjure up a hermetic dream of their own making. Their relationship, however, isn't exactly wholesome. Jealousy and a malevolent undercurrent intrude on their fantasy when Elisabeth invites the strange Agathe (Renée Cosima) to stay with them -- and Paul is immediately attracted to her.
