Children of Paradise


Dir. Marcel Carne (1944).
The French equivalent to Gone With the Wind, Marcel Carne’s grand elaboration on the life-as-theater-as-life metaphor derives additional emotional heft for being set at the dawn of the photographic age and filmed in German-occupied France.

Wednesdays-Fridays, 1 p.m. Starts: Aug. 17. Continues through Aug. 19, 2011
