  1. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    Intriguing choice of clips. As for the rest of it...

  2. Low's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    Interesting segments, but poorly made. Cousins own observations isn't always interesting.

  3. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    The awkwardly indulgent digicam sections with Cousins' family weaken the overall impact of the documentary.

  4. can's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    sanat sanat sanat, ama sıkıldım biraz.

  5. DanOffen's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

  6. NICOLE86's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    Another great film by Mark Cousins. While this one wasn't as detailed as Story of Film, it was really interesting and I was introduced to some films I have never heard of before.

  7. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    ★★★★ movies are like kids, kids are like movies.

  8. Eingya's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    Beautiful. Deeply analytic but also warm and filled with love for the medium of cinema. Cousins voice is a joy to listen to, and his analysis are quite detailed and really well exposed. Also an amazing display of documetarist technique with an astonishing attention to details (for example how subtitles are never shown unless strictly necessary).

  9. Gerard Corvin's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    Lyrical narration, films you've never heard of (and probably will never get to see), a sense of the wonder of film and of childhood... by now I expect all these things as standard from Mark Cousins. SoCaF is good Cousins but only good Cousins (not a patch on the brilliance of There be Dragons)- the frame structure (observation of nephew and niece) is a unconvincing anchor and what was the trip to skye all about!

  10. El Biffo's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    SFIFF '14 A fabulous look at children in world cinema, with only a couple of American ones included, and many rarities, not all the most typical ones we think of. Yes, a nod to Antoine Doinel's escape to the beach, but much, much more, including clips from some films I bet even YOU haven't seen!

  11. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    To omit Ruiz from THE STORY OF FILM, Mr Cousins, may be regarded as a misfortune; to omit Ruiz from A STORY OF CHILDREN AND FILM looks like carelessness.

  12. Brad Scott's rating of the film A Story of Children and Film

    Fantastically inspiring film to watch, and re-watch
