Event description

Description

Marcel Carné
3h 9min
Drama, Romance
"Les Enfants was to 30s French cinema what Gone With The Wind was to American cinema: a fully realised expression, and also the death-knell for a certain kind of cinema some people wish we still had now." - Richard Roud.
Considered one of the greatest French films of all time, Children of Paradise revives 19th century France through its characters, drama and poetry. It tells the story of an actress loved by four men based on four different historical figures. The film immortalizes Jean-Gaspard Debureau (interpreted by Jean-Louis Barrault), famous mime who re-popularized the stock character Pierrot. In 2012, Pathé launched a major restoration of the film, greatly improving its sound and image quality.
