CHILDREN OF PARADISE
LES ENFANTS DU PARADIS
1945, Janus Films, 190 min, France, Dir: Marcel Carné

Jacques Prévert's timeless script follows a theater troupe traveling through 19th-century France, where mime Jean-Louis Barrault finds great success professionally but is unable to find happiness in his personal life. Prévert and Carné's epic treatment of intimate emotion was named the best French film of the century in a 1990s poll of more than 600 French filmmakers and critics. “Few achievements in the world of cinema can equal it.” - Roger Ebert. In French with English subtitles.
