The Greatest French Classic
(1945, dir. Marcel Carné, w/ Arletty, Jean-Louis Barrault, Pierre Brasseur, Pierre Renoir)
Les Enfants du Paradis will finish at approximately 9:51pm.
This masterpiece of cinematic storytelling follows the lives of members of a theatrical troupe in 19th century France. This tragic tale centers around the ill-fated love between Baptiste, a theatre mime, and Claire Reine, an actress and otherwise woman-about-town who calls herself Garance. Garance, in turn, is loved by three other men. Wonderful, first-rate story written by Jacques Prevert. One of the greatest French films of all time.FILM INFO (Astor rating)
