187 minutes · 1945

Drama, Period drama
Set in the 1840s and filmed during the occupation in Paris, Marcel Carne's 1945 masterpiece about the undying love of Garance (Arletty) and the mime Deburau (Jean-Louis Barrault) is a breathtaking study of the relationships between life and theater, mime and tragedy, the real and the imagined, sound and silence. It runs 187 minutes, and it's worth every one of them. In French with subtitles.
