Children of Men

Question: There are numerous instances where animals seem to like or be attracted to Theo, the dogs at the farm being the most prominent. Is this supposed to show or imply anything to us? Or is there any reason given for this phenomenon in the film?

Chosen answer: Alfonso Cuaron compared the character of Theo to biblical characters like Moses, so I would assume that the animals' attraction to Theo is a reference to Noah and the Ark, which represents several themes in the film.

Question: Was the birth scene real? It seemed completely real, and the woman appeared to actually be pregnant earlier in the film.

Jason Hoffman

Chosen answer: No, it wasn't real. Good make-up and acting, that's all.

Mistakes

The infant baby was computer animated in every scene in which the face appeared. Even the feet were obviously touched up by computer in the hallway scene. The lighting isn't quite right, the skin texture isn't quite right, and the child's face is just too animated.

Trivia
