From The Booth

Our Essential Cinema series returns with one of the most highly regarded titles in the history of film. “With its magnificent evocation of place and period, this epic melodrama is set in the ‘theatre street’ of 1840s Paris. Its highly theatrical story is centred around Baptiste (Jean-Louis Barrault), a mime, who falls in love with the actress, Garance (Arletty). Graced with superb performances from Arletty and Barrault, it remains a glorious celebration of romantic love.”- Halliwell. “Few achievements in the world of cinema can equal it.” - Roger Ebert. In French with subtitles.
