CHILDREN OF MEN (2006)




Director:
Alfonso Cuaron

Writer:
Alfonso Cuaron
Timothy J. Sexton and others

Starring:
Clive Owen
Julianne Moore
Michael Caine and others

Children Of Men is an engaging watch courtesy the brilliance of Cuaron (better known for directing Harry Potter and The Prisoner Of Azkaban and Y Tu Mama Tambien ). The script is well paced but what really stood out for me was the direction. Cuaron expertly incorporates small nuances to make it evident that the world is no longer like it is in the present times. Gorgeously disturbing cinematography adds another dimension to the movie, which is set in London in 2027, in a time when humans cannot reproduce. Clive Owen is very good and the supporting cast does pitch in efficiently. Do watch this movie especially for its stunning direction and screenplay.

Pranit’s Rating: 8/10
