Les enfants du paradis (1945)




The tale of a woman and the four men (a mime, an actor, a criminal, and an aristocrat) who fall for her, each in his own way. Set in the 19th century Paris theatre scene, this richly entertaining, elaborately mounted, funny, and heartbreaking emotional epic of tangled relationships seems to bear the influence of William Shakespeare (a performance of Othello within the movie could be seen as a tribute). When it's not dealing with painful emotions, the film has an oddly pleasing sweet-natured tone. Well-shot and well-acted, with great dialogue and colourful characters who interact fascinatingly.
