Les Enfants Du Paradis
‘Les Enfants du Paradis’ is the most beautiful love story ever told. Four very different men - the greatest mime, the finest actor, the richest nobleman and the most prolific criminal of the day - fight for the love of Garance, an orphan, in post-revolutionary Paris. As the affairs deepen and entwine, they mimic the pantomimes and melodramas that the audiences flock to see, packing the playhouses all the way up to the Gods.
Universally described as the greatest French film ever made, Simple 8 brings this new adaptation and translation to the Arcola as the perfect alternative to modern pantomime.
