In the Parisian theatre world of the early nineteenth century, the fates of four men - a brilliant mime artist, a great romantic actor, an aristocrat and a ruthless master criminal - are intertwined. All four love and are loved - at least for a time - by the beautiful, free-spirited Garance. Shot during the German Occupation, Les Enfants du paradis triumphantly overcame the constraints of wartime and was premiered in the recently liberated France of 1945. Widely considered to be one of the greatest films ever made, its spectacular magic can be fully appreciated only on the big screen.
