Les enfants du paradis

Marcel Carné France, 1945

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.
