"I would have given up all of my films to have directed Les Enfants du Paradis." – Francois Truffaut.

It was voted "The best French film ever made" by the French Film Academy.

The Children Of Paradise (Les Enfants Du Paradis) is a film of such dazzling proportions it has been labeled the French Gone With The Wind.

Set amidst the glittering theatre world of 19th century Paris, the story revolves around the beautiful and free-spirited courtesan, Garance (Arletty), and the four men who compete for her affections: mime-artist Baptiste Debureau (Jean-Louis Barrault), actor Frederick LeMaitre (Pierre Brasseur), aristocrat Edouard de Montray (Louis Salou) and criminal Pierre Francois Lacenaire (Marcel Herrand). As the melodrama unfolds, we are treated to one of cinema's greatest love stories - a captivating tale of passion, deception, and murder.
