the subject of hands
filmmaker jean cocteau knew a thing or two about beauty and poetry of motion. his films are unique, pure, and monochrome. although this photo of italian actress anna magnani looks like it might be taken from her performance in cocteau's play, 'the human voice', it is from the incredible film 'mama roma.' not only did these two people have great artistic gifts, they both had such beautiful hands.
