Critic Reviews for Children Of Invention
Shows enormous love and respect for those clutching at the short end of the American Dream.
Chen and Chiu's genuine, rarely cloying performances along with Cheung's urgent sincerity add immeasurably to this timely film's many modest pleasures.
Restraint proves a virtue of -- and a shrewd if necessary choice for -- Children of Invention, a modestly scaled, quietly effective independent movie about a struggling single mother and her two children.
Performances are realistic and unpretentious, and the backbone of this observant movie by a director-writer with a promising future.
Heartfelt but dramatically tepid tale of two kids who must fend for themselves after their single mom goes missing.
Audience Reviews for Children Of Invention
I've said it before, and I'll say it again...I am a sucker for movies revolving around children. This one is no exception. I enjoyed this movie, mostly because of Crystal Chiu. What an adorable little girl! She has such an expressive face, and did an outstanding job in this film. The whole movie was interesting, and the ending was appropriate, I thought. Nice little movie.
I liked this a lot - the kids were adorable and very believable and you could really feel the mother's struggle. Definitely worth watching.
Sweet, funny story about two kids trying to make it on their own. It was sweet and funny even Max liked it.
