Mark Cousins's infectious enthusiasm for cinema and his lightly worn knowledge shine through.

Top Critic

Idiosyncratic essay about children in movies from all over the world; the commentary is a bit precious but the clips are intriguing.

Scotsman

A hugely impressive work by a uniquely talented storyteller.

Full Review… | April 6, 2014
Observer [UK]

Cousins does eventually come to a conclusion: "Movies are like kids. Kids are like movies." That will do well enough as an epigram.

Irish Times

Its basic merit comes through consistently, and the children themselves are wonderfully real.

This is London

Mark Cousins' essay on children and cinema is playful and profound.

At the very least, you'll walk away from A Story of Children and Film with an additional 50 or so movies to add to your watch list.

The List

Captivating, educational stuff: ideal viewing for families looking to broaden their cinematic horizons.

Full Review… | April 4, 2014
Radio Times

It's a great subject, with great objects of fascination, study, interpretation.

Full Review… | April 3, 2014
Financial Times

Intrusive curation dominates in the rearview mirror.

Full Review… | April 3, 2014
Little White Lies

Something about Mark Cousins's feyly magisterial presenting style fits the material like a glove in his new documentary - it may be the best thing he's ever done.

Full Review… | April 3, 2014
Daily Telegraph

Our host's lilting voiceover remains an acquired taste, but his boundless passion is never in question.

Full Review… | March 31, 2014
Total Film

Another thoughtful and lovingly crafted jalopy ride through cinema by Cousins. A must for anyone who loves film.

Full Review… | March 31, 2014

Cousins manages to unearth a shelf of films we've never heard of, and then teases us with gorgeous scenes.
