Rather long, but well written and character and relationship driven, with little to no arresting imagery. None of the characters' plots resolve - it all loose ends.

A French film classic and one of the most marvelous pieces of cinema ever made. A delight. French title is Les Enfants du Paradis and was featured on Saturday Night at the Movies by my late friend Elwy Yost.

Often cited as the greatest French film ever made, Children of Paradise is an epic yet personal tour de force. Treat yourself to a monumental viewing experience. Paradise refers to the upper or balcony section of the audience in the theatre where some of the action takes place.

The Villain proves to be honorable. The Hero is, first, clueless and then brutal. The love interest interests lie only on herself. The wife?A masochist? Somehow, I didn't get the reference to paradise.
