Why did we choose this film? 

The film Children of Paradise is now considered, all over the world, as one of the most important films in the history of cinema. The film has become a masterpiece, bringing together many talents of the time sublimated by the dialogues of Jacques Prévert who plays with words in a poetic way. 

 

Our favorite quote? 

 "Paris is very small for those who, like us, love each other with such great love."

"Paris est tout petit pour ceux qui, comme nous, s'aiment d'un aussi grand amour."

 

Synopsis:

Strolling indolently around the 1830s vibrant Parisian avenue called the Boulevard du Crime, the graceful and elusive courtesan, Garance, finds herself wrongfully accused of pickpocketing. But, amid a sea of jugglers, sideshow performers, streetwalkers, and crooks, the silently eloquent mime, Baptiste, comes to her rescue, only to hopelessly fall for her. And just like that, love's sweet torture befalls the delicate pantomimist, as the insufferable burden of knowing that the object of his desire can never belong to anyone, will heartlessly haunt him for years to come. Many have tried to seize her heart--the flamboyant thespian, Frédérick Lemaître; the criminal dandy, Pierre-François Lacenaire, and the imperious but loveless Count, Édouard de Montray--however, Garance, after so many barren years, now seems to need only one man. In the end, trusting a frail and modest rose is beautiful but cruel. Is there anyone who can accept the naked truth of an unrequited love?
