Cuaron’s masterpiece so far (including Gravity, which was gravely miscast). This film is: a) easily the best film of the decade of the 2000’s; b) the finest dystopia film since ‘A Clockwork Orange’ and probably the best sci-fi since ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’; and c) all the evidence you need that Clive Owen should have been selected as James Bond in place of Daniel Craig. Heartily recommended to anyone interested in how great both science fiction and cinema can possibly be. You may be depressed with the state of both the world and mankind, after watching it, but you won’t be disappointed in the possibilities of cinema.
**Thought provoking piece of art !!**
**CHILDREN OF MEN**….How a baby’s cry can make the whole world stop, the bullets stop flying in a war, people forget all their pain, the only thing that matters is how to make that precious gift of god smile again..The movie depicts it beautifully! When the world is falling apart, coming to its end, how a THEO does things that he otherwise would have not done for anything or anybody else…It doesn’t seems practical that how at every point of time there is somebody to see them sail through, but that is all LIFE is about…HOPE…There’s a THEO in everyone of us…It’s in our hands…to choose, THEO or Luke…The world will surely end someday but till then we must all protect the CHILDREN OF MEN, protect the world…Do our bit for the mother earth..!!
**P.S. – loved the laughter of the babies in the end!!**
Scenes I LOVED –
1. When Julian was shot.
2. When Theo thought Jasper was dead.
3. When Dylan was born.
4. When Theo said to Luke “It’s a GIRL”
5. When Marichka expressed she isn’t coming.
There may be more, but these are all I remembered.
Michael Caine was adorable as always, Julianne Moore was pretty, Clive Owen was perfect, Kee was sweet, Miriam was, don’t know, clean…at heart !
Carefully crafted piece of work
This year I attended for the first time the Venice Film Festival in Italy. I was of course quite excited and bought tickets to some screenings of a few different films I found interesting. Initially Children of Men wasn’t in my plans but I was convinced by a friend who was very enthusiastic about it. Now I say I’m glad I bought the tickets! What an amazing film this is. The science fiction genre is just a coat to project into the future the horrors and problems of our current days and many films attempt that ending up, in most cases, failing. This one however succeeds. Succeeds indeed but not only in this… The film blew away nearly everyone in the audience as one of the best action movies we have seen lately, with extremely exciting and brutal chases, gun fights, etc. Don’t be put off by this though, the film is as good as it is not because of the action sequences but its amazingly emotional and touching story. The performances of the cast is impressive especially Clive Owen and the newcomer Claire Hope Ashitey who throughout the film develop the relationship between their characters and it’s such a joy to see the development. I’m not very good at writing reviews so I think I’ll stop know, but I had at least to transmit something to everyone who might be interested in watching this film. Don’t pass this one, you won’t regret it. In my view one of the few excellent films released this year.
“The future’s a thing of the past.” Tremendous from start to finish.
The apocalypse arrives on film once again in a plot so simple it’s horrifyingly believable. It’s 2027 and the world is close to annihilation because no child has been born in 18 years. London office worker Theo (Clive Owen) is offered cash by a radical ex-girlfriend to escort a refugee (Claire-Hope Ashitey) to safety. Their lives are soon at risk from both government and revolutionaries.
Although the camera work and cinematography is nothing short of stunning the focus always with our protagonist, ensuring we’re kept in the middle of the action throughout. It is also undoubtedly one of Owen’s finest performances to date. Theo is never far from danger yet he struggles on with convincing dignity. Occasionally baffled but far from stupid – Theo is essentially a reckless, underplayed action hero that doesn’t jump at every opportunity to arm himself with a gun. This works well with the international ensemble of incredible talent: Michael Caine’s charming pot dealing hippie, feisty Julianne Moore, key role Claire-Hope Ashitey, the wonderful Pam Ferris, the increasingly busy, excellent Chiwetel Ejiofor, Danny Huston and writer/director/producer Peter Cullen (gloriously sadistic Syd) to name a few… This is surely a casting coup to be jealous of.
The episodic nature of the story makes Children of Men difficult to place into one genre alone. Briefly glimpsed futuristic sci-fi technology is grounded in reality and looks entirely achievable while grey, graffiti ridden concrete locations provide an excellent backdrop for the near satirical look of our current social and political climate. There’s poignant drama interspersed amongst exhilarating action and yet enough twists to call it a thriller.
This is not to say it’s flawless. Some exposition is handled better in places than others for instance. However Alfonso Cuarón has achieved a completely remarkable experience. Arguably the film could have been longer given how strong most of it is. The only really hard pill to swallow is the comedy juxtaposed with some stark imagery that looks all too familiar to anyone who has ever seen the News from the past few decades. Nice to see a Pink Floyd reference though (pigs might fly!), and someone finally found a use for Battersea Power Station.
Ideally an audience should see this film with no preconceptions and know as little about the plot as possible. This will be unlikely though due to a staggered box-office release schedule, word of mouth and a plethora of reviews and trailers that are eager to give much of the game away. Ironic then perhaps that it must be said – Children of Men is a cinematic milestone. Great special effects and an effective soundtrack accompany this heartfelt, moving and thought-provoking film. Easily one of the best films in recent memory.
