Children of Paradise ( enfants du paradis, Les )
Words could not express the *perfect* magnificence of this film.
When considering classic love-stories, Children of Paradise fits every adjective to describe beauty, tragedy, longing, LOVE - I blush even trying to review it.
This is other-worldly screenwriting. This is celluloid gold.
There are dramatic ups & downs that - even to this day, have yet to be equaled.
Here there are engaging, lovely characters that are full of dimension and depth...this is one of the best pieces of writing I've ever seen put to the screen. I learned so much just watching it.
During this 3 hour epic, we witness change and growth - painful choices of our main characters and the heartbreaking results, unimaginable devotion - selfless loyalty, and brave acts of recovery.
There has never been a more dazzling, magic tale of love told through film...and no review of it could do it justice, so experience it for yourself.
(& you'll thank me later.)
