Verified Purchase. This is what cinema can do. Such joy to see this magnificent film again after too many years away from its unique, bustling charms. His boundless, bounding energy and optimism is catching, and the film is lifted even higher whenever he appears. This is a film about theatre, and the different kinds of performance on stage and in daily life.
The main players are in some way involved in theatre, but there are petty thieves, landladies, aristocrats and many other types represented too. Spanish actress Maria Casares is superb as Nathalie, the woman who loves Baptiste, and her last scene is heart-rending. To say more would spoil it for newcomers.
There are so many felicitous moments that I can only urge you to see this literally marvellous film for yourself. The dream of a screenplay by Jacques Prevert is pretty much flawless, and unlike almost anything written for any other film.
There are lyrical passages of dialogue which seem at first unnaturally poetic, but are exactly right for the particular moment in the story. Prevert deserves much of the credit for this, as do the director and actors Loopzone - Hate / Les Enfants Du Paradis (Vinyl) in this masterpiece of masterpieces.
Essential, and joyfully recommended. I sincerely hope this masterpiece is still appreciated and enjoyed as a French supreme example in Cinema, of BeautyMagic and Love. Difficult to find today such an amount of poetry in a film.
Nevertheless following Balzac tradition, reality is always present, dark and tragic but as a difference with standard issues, horror and grace are present always occurring or existing at the same time, in all their innocence, as two different contexts but not contrasting ones but complementary.
Even if unity persists in each one of them. Perhaps a portrait of life in her own ways, not as it "usually is" but added a remarkable amount of what it "could be": life drastic differences of tone love and hate, death and life, crime and passionlie and purity Perhaps these words are a synthesis of Marcel Carne's philosophy, also perhaps as a reference to life. After their first and only night of love, Garance, not wanting to destroy Babtiste little son's life, goes away for everwith Babtiste inmense desperation.
To be honest, I was rather scared of seeing this film. Its reputation, plus the fact that I did not really know many of the actors and that there are scenes of mime in it all conspired against my watching it. Suddenly, on reaching an advanced age, I thought that I should watch the classic French films Loopzone - Hate / Les Enfants Du Paradis (Vinyl), eventually I plucked up courage to watch "Les Enfants du Paradis".
I was a little optimistic about the film but was quite unprepared for the experience of being totally enthralled from the very first minute until the last. Those reviewers who say that, although 3 hours 15 Loopzone - Hate / Les Enfants Du Paradis (Vinyl) long, the film does not feel at all long could not be more right. This is a display of consummate acting by all concerned. Watching Arletty as Garance you can see why she was a legend of French cinema.
Pierre Brasseur is truly fascinating as the arrogant actor, Lemaitre. Jean-Louis Barrault as Baptiste quite simply makes mime an art. I should, however, be wrong not to mention a now largely forgotten actor who, when he is on screen, you cannot take your eyes off him. That is Marcel Herrand as Lacenaire, the murderer, thief, playright. His is a performance which absolutely fascinates, whilst repelling rather the sort of ability that Jules Berry had.
The story holds your attention throughout and covers the complete spectrum of human emotions. If you do not watch this film, you are missing one of the great cinematic experiences. Best French film of all time?
Best film ever made? Quite probably. At least a very compelling argument would be made by anyone who has seen it. See all reviews from the United Kingdom. Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English. Strolling indolently around the s 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. 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? Written by Nick Riganas. One day in I was walking along 8th Street in the Village. The Village was where I went when I had no where else to go, when I belonged no where, where I thought I could discover myself.
It didn't hurt that there were people to stare at, without being too obvious about it. It was a gray day and it started to rain. I stopped under the first protection I found, a movie marque - neither handsome nor attractive. The photos promoting the film were behind glass at odd angles, held by tacks. I just wasn't in the mood. It wasn't what I was looking for. But the rain got worse, and I needed warmth. So I bought my ticket to join the twenty or so people who comprised the full audience. From its first moment, the film pulled me in.
After a frenetic start, it quieted to Jean-Louis Barrault sitting alone on a barrel. I'd seen Marceau before, but not until now had I seen the quiet poetry of true mime. Barrault's character, Baptiste, had silently observed the theft of a Loopzone - Hate / Les Enfants Du Paradis (Vinyl). Baptiste pantomimed the theft but staged his pantomime as if people's perceptions were a mistake, as if the theft never took place. In the doing, he made everyone laugh.
He did this for the love of Garance, played by Arletty, whom he had seen for the first time. There follows in the film first love - unrequited, poetic, soulful.
We see villainy, melodrama, danger, heroism, satire, plays within plays - a host of stories all integral to the whole of the play, Loopzone - Hate / Les Enfants Du Paradis (Vinyl).
And we believe completely. It is the most complete film ever made. It changed my life. Looking for some great streaming picks?
