  1. Luca Di Gianni's rating of the film Children of Paradise

  2. Soleyn75's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Très beau film R Bouëtel !!!

  3. Trinankur Banerjee's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    It is not the answer to Gone with the Wind, it is the answer to Oedipus Rex and Macbeth in their respective ages (sorry papa Hegel). Whoever compares this to Gone with the Wind simply have no clue about cinema, or life in general. An impossible film. I hope nobody ever tries to make a fucking remake of this film. I will murder him even if I am dead by then.

  4. Masoud Einabadi's rating of the film Children of Paradise

  5. Carolina Frade's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Garance has the arrogance and narcissism of one hundred Scarlett O'Haras and none of the beauty or charm (Arletty has one facial expression).

  6. Jema Gaskin Charles's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Creating the beautiful contrast of melancholia and the perennial profession of life. There are many brilliant lines in this film and many strong characters once you are passed the charmed curtain of melodramatic archetype.

  7. captainfez's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    I never thought I'd be entranced by a three-hour war-produced film where mime features prominently, but HERE I FUCKING AM.

  8. Nabil Hamzaki's rating of the film Children of Paradise

  9. Aardsy's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Love is a performance in itself.

  10. Renton47's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    The events conspiring to get it made are a wonder - even more impressive then the film is so wonderful. One drawback of depicting the dramatic arts is if there's no delineation between the character and their acting, it all becomes artifice. That happens here, aided with a heavy reliance on dramatic irony, but it's not detrimental to the scope and pleasures of its smaller moments. 3.5

  11. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Another one of those classics you go in with somewhat high expectations and it turns out to really test your patience as a cinephile. Needs a rewatch, I liked it but it was a rough one.

  12. gld48's rating of the film Children of Paradise

  13. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Not sure about all the hair choices. Particularly Lacenaire with his curlies. The best scene for me was when Edouard sets out to provoke a duel with Lemaitre, and Lacenaire steps in.

  14. Mert Kaya's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    masterpiece but second part was dim. 4.5

  15. FISCHER's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Incontestable chef-d'oeuvre, modèle patenté du classicisme cinématographique français, cette production commencée à Nice, aux studios de la Victorine, interrompue durant trois mois, à cause du débarquement allié en Sicile et poursuivi, dans les studios de Joinville, bénéficiait d'une merveilleuse conjonction entre des acteurs sublimes, un scénario splendide et les merveilleux dialogues de Prévert. www.cinefiches.com

  16. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Children of Paradise

  17. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    3-4. This film is dripping in delectable metaphors, and there must be something like 3 (or more) nuances for almost every spoken line. However, there are long scenes that play out to illustrate complicated ideas, but comparatively simple plot points. Conflict is barely there for long stretches of the movie, and it hardly seems to effect the characters' decisions. This movie could have used a stronger foundation.

  18. kinotopia's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    why is the audience meant to worship Baptiste? characters are written troubled and self-obsessed, consumed by their petty traumas, then left to their own devices in a slaphappy b&w revisionist but still misogynistic and retrogressive France out of a Jean Renoir movie. sympathy is disproportionately guided towards male characters, contempt is left for Garrance and Nathalie. long movie does not mean good movie.

  19. Chris's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    4 men and 1 woman ruin their own lives, each other's lives, and the lives of those around them chasing love. Moral of the story: love is FAKE, a MYTH, a SCAM.... the film was technically perfect but marred by a weak story, 7/10

  20. Syranos's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Meilleur film français et mon film préféré.

  21. Joel's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Caught this on the big screen last night and didn't realize how long the running time was, but was delighted by how enthralling and compelling the narrative prooved to be. It was a richness to find the long-awaited ending so nuanced. A fine film I would award an extra half star if I could.

  22. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Children of Paradise

  23. SpacePirate's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Incredible from start to finish. One of the best of all French cinema

  24. Dignan's rating of the film Children of Paradise

    Baptiste, a repressed homosexual, pines for the film’s alleged lustful subject: an old, unattractive slut. Ridiculous narrative overshadows technique.
