Les amours de la pieuvre
The flowing grace of an eight-armed embrace, the silky glow of a spherical eye… Painlevé's soft portrait of a special sea creature is a sublime example of the most magical films in existence. Featuring a soundtrack created by electrical music pioneer Pierre Henry.
Jean Painlevé (20 November 1902 – 2 July 1989) was a photographer and filmmaker who specialized in underwater fauna.
