Les Enfants du Paradis (Children of Paradise) Reviews

On the basis alone of performance and of its bold, picturesque mise en scene, Les Enfants du Paradis is worth your custom. What you get otherwise is to boot.

Apollo Guide

The story behind the making of Les Enfants du Paradis (Children of Paradise) is about as interesting as the film itself, and since the film is one of the great achievements of French cinema, that's saying something.

Carne's backstage backdrop has clearly set the standard for most theater-bound films.

Carné's France, unlike the fiddle-dee-dee of Victor Fleming's cotton pickin' South, is a poetic realist's wonderland.

Leaves one with the seemingly contradictory, yet deeply moving, impression of both reality and dream.

The movie has flashes of oldtime magic. It's a precious piece of time past -- and time kept.
