This film's about being someone who experiences life with great passion and sensitivity, with wonderful and horrible insight into others, and therefore both a deeper love and a deeper hurt, a sensitivity which will always necessarily leave you on the outside. Renoir knew more about what it took to truly love others than any other film maker, but at the end even Octave has to walk away from the den... read more

“This film's about being someone who experiences life with great passion and sensitivity, with wonderful and horrible insight into others, and therefore both a deeper love and a deeper hurt, a sensitivity which will always necessarily leave you on the outside. Renoir knew more about what it took to truly love others than any other film maker, but at the end even Octave has to walk away from the dense macabre of the manor house. Not sure if I am willing to do the same, but this film captures the passionate reasons why I sometimes want to just run away and become a hermit-while also really not wanting to- more fully than any other work of art.” read more

"Poetic Realism From the few films I've seen, Children of Paradise epitomizes poetic realism, but it isn't as brilliant technically as The Rules of the Game. It's still a masterpiece. "
