About the film: Poetic realism reaches sublime heights with Children of Paradise, the ineffably witty tale of a woman loved by four different men. Deftly entwining theater, literature, music, and design, director Marcel Carne and screenwriter Jacques Prevert resurrect the tumultuous world of nineteenth-century Paris, teeming with hucksters and aristocrats, thieves and courtesans, pimps and seers.NOFS is proud to present this masterpiece – repeatedly declared the greatest French film of all time – in a restored DCP taken from the original camera negative.
“From the time it was made until now, decade after decade, this film holds up as a masterpiece.” – Woody Allen
