Children of Paradise

I have seen many movies and rarely have I run across a treasure such as this exceptional French film that covers everything from comedy to romance and to drama. Jean-Louis Barrault gives an excellent performance as a mime entertaining in a theater located in Paris who falls tremendously in love with fair maiden Garace, played by Arletty. However, several unfortunate events occur that keep them regrettably apart. This movie has been declared by some to be the best movie ever made; it's certainly up there! An unforgettable and highly engaging epic.
