Still image from the film Children of Paradise
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.

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.

There will be an intermission between parts. French language with English subtitles. 2K DCP presentation.
