  10. Le Jeune Homme is in the territory of realism with a dash of cubism, given that Roland was heavily influenced by Picasso, they moved in the same circles and worked together – for instance, it was Picasso who created the front cloth for Petit’s Le Rendez-vous.  Petit was also inspired by Cocteau, of course. Consider what Cocteau wrote for the scenario of Le Jeune Homme:

    ‘In a studio a young man awaits. Enter a young girl, agent of his distress. He throws himself at her, she rejects him, he pleads with her, she insults him, ridicules him and leaves. He hangs himself and the room vanishes, only the rope remains. Through the roof death arrives in a ballgown. Death removes her mask and we see the young girl. She places the mask on her victim’s face and together they flee towards the rooftop.’

    As you can see, it’s short, concise and very powerful, a bit spooky too and it leaves a lot for audiences to interpret. This is what I have always liked about Petit’s works: they are powerful pieces on the themes of life, death, love, despair and they deeply affect their interpreters. At the end you feel like you have completed a journey. It is what I love about his work.
