This film is about children in global cinema. It's a passionate, poetic, portrait of the adventure of childhood; it's surrealism, loneliness, fun, destructiveness and stroppiness, as seen throgh 53 great films from 25 countries. It's an eye opener, a landmark and a celebration of childhood and films.
Mark Cousins follows his magnificent “A Story of Film” with this filmic essay, another proof of his enthusiasm and vast knowledge of world cinema. The film is nimble, distinctive and a treat. Every so often we offer you something special and completely different.
This gets 4 or 5 stars in all reviews and is rated 7.1 on imbd.
Part of our childhood month.
Review ... "A nimble and distinctive cine-essay featuring a mosaic of clips, images and moments of children in the movies"
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a ground breaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes.
Another top film of 2014 or even some say the decade. Now a BAFTA winner, will get an Oscar too?
