Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
With this dystopian world ravished by war, paranoia and the frustrations of Man the Orwellian vision of Nineteen Eighty-Four, the totalitarian future is now complete and amongst us. With female fertility becoming obsolete, Man cannot reproduce, and no child has been born on the face of the planet for eighteen years. Man, and his future, is dying. Soon he shall be extinct. Theo, the beaten, downtrodden and middle-aged ex-political activist will, unwittingly, become involved in a war of an underground revolt. Here he is active once more, in the perilous journey across England's Home Counties, with a young girl, Kee, who, to Theo's bewilderment is pregnant. The first pregnant woman for more than eighteen years. This secret must be protected, at all cost, and mother and child must flee to the mysterious and enigmatic Human Project, across the seas. Their flight is a constant fight for survival. Who can be trusted? Who can keep a secret?
No children. No future. No hope.

- The Year 2027.
- Jasper: Your baby is the miracle the whole world has been waiting for.
Theodore Faron: I can't really remember when I last had any hope, and I certainly can't remember when anyone else did either. Because really, since women stopped being able to have babies, what's left to hope for?
Miriam: As the sound of the playgrounds faded, the despair set in. Very odd, what happens in a world without children's voices.
Luke: [his last line] I had a sister...
Jasper: Everything is a mythical, cosmic battle between faith and chance. [offers Miriam a joint] Miriam: Maybe I shouldn't. Jasper: You already did. Take another one. Now cough. What do you taste? Miriam: Strawberries! Jasper: Strawberries? That's what it's called: Strawberry Cough! Kee: Wicked! Jasper: So. You've got faith over here, right? And chance over there. Miriam: Like yin and yang. Jasper: Sort of. Miriam: Or Shiva and Shakti. Jasper: Lennon and McCartney! Kee: [looking at pictures] Look, Julian and Theo. Jasper: Yeah, there you go! Julian and Theo met among a million protestors in a rally by chance. But they were there because of what they believed in in the first place, their faith. They wanted to change the world. And their faith kept them together. But by chance, Dylan was born. Kee: [picks up another photo] This is him? Jasper: Yeah, that's him. He'd have been about your age. Magical child. Beautiful. Their faith put in praxis. Miriam: "Praxis"? What happened? Jasper: Chance. He was their sweet little dream. He had little hands, little legs, little feet. Little lungs. And in 2008, along came the flu pandemic. And then, by chance, he was gone. You see, Theo's faith lost out to chance. So, why bother if life's going to make its own choices? Kee: Baby's got Theo's eyes. Jasper: Yeah. Miriam: Oh, boy. That's terrible. But, you know, everything happens for a reason. Jasper: That, I don't know. But Theo and Julian would always bring Dylan. He loved it here.
- When Theo is walking down the ramp on Battersea Power Station, a stenciled image of two policemen kissing can be seen on a wall. The image was created by "Banksy", a British "guerilla artist" who specializes in that kind of work. Other Banksy works appear in the film, including a stenciled image of a child looking down a shop.
In the Bexhill tower block scene, Theo is wearing a London 2012 Olympics fleece.
For the first week of release at Leicester Square, London, there was a mistake on the cinema marquee, declaring the film title to be "Children of Me".
When Miriam is taken off the bus in the refugee camp you can hear the song "Arbeit Macht Frei" by The Libertines. "Arbeit macht frei," meaning "Work shall set you free," was written above the entrance at Auschwitz, one of the major Nazi Concentration Camps.
The long shot when the Fiat Multipla is attacked by terrorists, with all the passengers inside, demanded a camera rig that could rotate within the car. They used a rig developed by Doggicam Systems, and controlled by a stunt driver. The single shot was shot in six takes over four locations, requiring a lot of transition work from the VFX-house Double Negative as it pans around inside the car. The cocktail, stunt driver and motorcycle (from the moment it hits the car), windshield, blood, and roof, were all computer generated with 3-D animation.
