Product Description

Children Of Paradise' 2 DVDS, Marcel Carné (1945), New Sealed.


It's wonderful to find so many positive comments for what is widely accepted to be and acknowledged as Carne/Prevert's finest hour. Once again a film made and released more than fifty years ago is 'speaking' to a new generation. In an age when technology rules and computer animation is king it is so refreshing to look back on a time when movies relied on 1) a great script, 2)great actors, 3) great direction and 4) gifted technical crews, when they were, in fact, in the business of story telling and spell weaving. No one did it better in the late thirties/early forties than Carne and Prevert and here they are both on top of their game. It is interesting that so many comments come from the U.S.A. where they do not have the secondary meaning of 'gods' that exists in England and France - the cheapest seats in the gallery of a theatre, almost always occupied by genuine lovers of the theater who cannot afford the dearer stalls (orchestra in the US) seats, thus opening the meaning of the title as poor but genuine theater lovers, true 'children of the gods'. I and anyone would be hard put to improve on the superlatives already heaped on this masterpiece but it may be as well to remind ourselves that the bigger they are the harder they fall. After a succession of successes culminating in this, the Carne/Prevert team followed up with 'Les Portes de la Nuit' which was the most expensive film ever made in France at the time and which was a total disaster both critically and commercially, so much so that the writer and director never worked together again. But that should not prevent us basking in their greatest triumph again and again and again.
