I think this movie portraits one of the most realistic futures that ever made in history of cinema industry. No flying cars, laser guns, advanced ai, gigantic spacecrafts but the awful tomorrow that we might leave to our children as a legacy.
So incredibly beautiful.
A science fiction fable/thriller set in the 2020s when a child has not been born in almost two decades. Clive Owen stars as a reluctant hero who must protect humanity's last hope at surviving, but it's not really about him. It's about the world Cuaron has created, and be extension, about ours. Children of Men is the ultimate victory of the global economy over humanity, with a fascist Britain savagely protecting its borders from refugees from the rest of the world's collapse. The gritty, washed-out documentarian camera, keeping all the effects in the background, creates an entirely believable - and terrifying - future. The film has perhaps the highest count of incidental animal appearances in all of cinema, a nice touch that reminds us of who will inherit this childless Earth.
