Cravate, La (1957, FRA) C-21m. n/r D: Alexandre (=Alejandro) Jodorowsky. Starring Alejandro Jodorowsky, Denise Brossot, Rolande Polya, Saul Gilbert. First venture into cinema by cult figure Jodorowsky. He plays a slightly foolish suitor, who, due to unrequited love, goes to a street urchin who can exchange heads. Interesting experiment made without dialogue, in bright color. Even if it may only be a footnote in the artist's career, it is a must for his followers. Regarded as lost for decades, rediscovered in 2006 and remastered for DVD release. Based on a novel by Thoman Mann. English titles: THE TRANSPOSED HEADS, THE SEVERED HEADS.
