    I can't recall the last time I was so overwhelmed by a film as I was with Marcel Carné 's Children of Paradise. The Criterion DVD is amazing and the transfer unbelievably better than the Laser Disc I saw of it years ago... ( please remember it is still from 1945 ! )
    I was absolutely blown away by this film on DVD... it comes out Tuesday, and I strongly suggest a purchase... the greatest French Film ever made ?... perhaps.
    I hurriedly wrote my graphic review ( good captures ) here:

    I will cross-post this to Software as I have done a bit of a commentary on the DVD quality as well...
    If Criterion had released this prior to Jan 1 then I would say an easy winner for DVD of the Year in my books...
    Have any of you seen this film ? and in what format (s) ?

    Compared to what I saw on TCM, those screen captures on your site look incredible.

    Yeah THi, I saw a similar screening on TV years ago, and even the laser disc does not compare to this DVD. Criterion does it again !!

    Cheers,
