Children of Men || The sustainability of human life is at stake - reproduction has stopped!
For some reason not yet understood, all pregnant women in the world have miscarried and reproduction is no longer taking place. Such an issue is a direct threat to the sustainability of human life and provides a new and different perspective on the apocalypse.
All this includes the not very contradictory plot of the film Children of Men, released in 2006. While watching the film, compared to some films about the end of humanity, the scenario feels more realistic and more likely to happen in the future.
As a result of the proliferation of plastic waste and insufficient recycling, traces of the presence of plastics have begun to emerge even from the bodies of fish. We know that many foods contain genetically modified products. Such life-threatening changes that lead to new types of diseases may lead to a reality similar to the above scenario.
In this respect, I must say that I found the scenario in the film Children of Men more realistic than fictional. I also watched more carefully the more realistic film, which is about the work carried out on the end of humanity.
Imagine if, for some unknown reason, human reproduction stopped. The end of humanity couldn't have a cleaner ending than that. The youngest person in the world is 18 years old and there has been no record of a pregnancy for 18 years.
Believing that God is punishing people in such a situation may be only one of the excuses put forward by those trying to create chaos. A scientific approach to the issue requires more reasons to be put forward, but none of them can agree exactly what the reason is. This means chaos all over the world.
A miracle is a reality that appears in the most difficult times and can offer a solution. Kee (played by Clare-Hope Ashitey) is the heroine of this miracle in the film because she is the only woman to become pregnant after 18 years. Theo Faron (played by Clive Owen) is the male protagonist who tries to get Kee out of the country so that she can join the human project.
All this is done in the name of humanity. When you dedicate yourself to an idea, you can even risk death for that idea. I have seen this both in Children of Men and in other films where people fight for a cause.
The sacredness of the struggle causes you to be more impressed while watching the film. As the clashes between the groups and the state soldiers continue at full speed, you get goosebumps in the scene where everyone suddenly sees the newborn child. Everyone suddenly stops the fighting because they don't want the miracle (the baby) to be harmed.
I can say that I liked the film Children of Men directed by Alfonso Cuarón with its simple plot and story revolving around the simple plot. If the story does not seem boring to you, I recommend you to watch the film. Clive Owen had the best performance in the film. He was successful in reflecting the values he believed in and showing what he could do for them.
How many people can manage to hope until the last moment for a project that you don't know whether it is real or not yet, and finally risk losing their lives for their hope? Of course, the answer to the question is in the film, but what I really want to say is the reality of the saying "believing is half the success".
