Les Enfants du Paradis (1945)
[#85 in The All-New 100 Films in a Year Challenge 2022]
Blindspot 2022 #11

Considering I often struggle to watch any kind of film on a work night nowadays, attempting a 3-hour-10-minute one might seem foolhardy. The secret ingredient: it's in two parts, so I could stop halfway if needed. I also made sure to start with plenty of time, just in case — and I'm glad I did, because I watched the whole thing in one sitting (well, okay, I did have a little break at the intermission) because it's brilliant.
