    1) One of the most accurate depiction of life in theater. 2) Arletty! 3) The haunting visual poetry.

    1) Garance! 2) Garance!! 3)Garance!!! The first time I watched this I was literally on my feet shouting at my TV at the end for it not to be over. Absolutely incredible.

    1) I'm not a huge fan of mimes, and yet the pantomime performances take my breath away 2) Listening to the exquisite sounds of the name "Garance" every time it's spoken - especially Pierre Brasseur's fabulous voice 3) Great art can emerge from adversity: the Nazis were in control when they were filming this

    I've seen Citizen Kane many times, but I nominate Children of Paradise for best film ever. I first saw it in the Carnegie Hall Cinema back in the 1970s, and I came away literally speechless (like a mime), my heart pierced. The Bicycle Thief is way up there, too, but nothing can match the sweep and emotional impact of this one.
