Feeling very reminiscent of French Cinema from the 50’s and 60’s, Other People’s Children is a beautiful and charming film. The way it constructs all its themes so tightly together in such a concise and poignant way, whilst also allowing for plenty of laughs and smiles, makes this one of the best feel good films going around. The connection between the two lead characters is so raw and genuine that on its own, would be enough to keep you engaged and enthralled. However, as the film progresses, the inclusion of riveting side plots and thought provoking supporting characters propels the film to be so much more investigative and intellectual than a lot of other fewl good films. If you’re looking to explore film outside of this year’s MIFF selection, then Other People’s Children is the film for you. EO
