If you have approximately 35 minutes to spare, Jean Cocteau would like to give you a tour of his friend’s villa in Cap Ferrat. The tour is in French but mostly you’ll be looking at artwork, and it’s still perfectly lovely and transporting without subtitles. There is no slush there; instead there is greenery and good-natured camera tricks, filmed in Kodachrome.
