Plot: A romantic epic loosely based on the life of Baptiste Debureau, a 19th century mime idolized for his portrayal of the wistful, white-face clown Pierrot. The film won critical acclaim for its faithful recreation of Parisian street theater, as well as for Jean-Louis Barrault's brilliant performance as Debureau.

Above all, it is a love story, focusing on Debureau's passion for the beautiful Garance -- a passion for which he would risk everything... including his own marriage.
