The screenplay of Les Enfants du paradis
Dazzling. Colossal and colorful. Poetry. When admiring this handwritten screenplay full of drawings, one can feel the presence of Jacques Prévert, and imagine the poet, in his country house, in front of this gigantic sheet of Bristol paper, a cigarette in his mouth, transforming a hole dug by ashes in the paper, into a flower.
An entire film, condensed on a large 25 x 32,5 in. sheet
The storyboard pinned to the wall, Prévert drew horizontal lines, to separate the characters in order of importance. Baptiste, Frédéric, Garance, the rope dancers, the troupe of mime artists ... This document is a painting where traces of the characters and snatches of dialogue are outlined.
