Miami Beach Cinematheque: CHILDREN OF PARADISE by Marcel Carné

MBC Interactive Archive Retro and FILMS ON THE BEACH presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy: CHILDREN OF PARADISE by Marcel Carné. Poetic realism reaches sublime heights with CHILDREN OF PARADISE (Les Enfants du Paradis), the ineffably witty tale of a woman loved by four different men. Deftly entwining theater, literature, music, and design, director Marcel Carné and screenwriter Jacques Prévert resurrect the tumultuous world of nineteenth-century

Paris, teeming with hucksters and aristocrats, thieves and courtesans, pimps and seers. Janus Films is proud to present this masterpiece – repeatedly declared the greatest French film of all time – in a new, 4K digital restoration taken directly from the original camera negative.

“THIS RESTORATION REIGNITES A GLORIOUS FLAME! A RICH AND DELICIOUS MOVIE TREAT!”-The Guardian

“ONE OF THE GREATEST FRENCH FILMS OF ALL TIME!”-New York Magazine

“A dazzling recreation of the teeming Parisian theatre world of the 1830s and 40s, carried along by sparkling, witty dialogue.”-Sight & Sound.
