Poetic realism reaches sublime heights with Children of Paradise (Les enfants du paradis), the ineffably witty tale of a woman loved by four different men.Deftly entwining theater, literature, music, and design, director Marcel Carne and screenwriter Jacques Prevert resurrect the tumultuous world of 19th-Century Paris, teeming with hucksters and aristocrats, thieves and courtesans, pimps and seers.The Criterion Collection is proud to present this milestone of cinema in a new high-definition film transfer made from the restored negative.
