HI,
Here once again asking things...

Any recommendations to what good movies to see where Kids have been the main actors? I want to se how they were shot and especially in the 1.85 aspect ratio. I am really interested in how different cinematographers approached the issue and how they represented through camera the child relation to the world.
Many thanks once again
Miguel

I'm suprised that A Series of Unfortunate Events hasn't been mentioned yet.

Gorgeous movie.

Not totally based on a kid, but "The Ring", the son is shown alot. Also, "Thirteen", in the same genre of "Kids".

Ive always envied Iranian Directors and how they are so good with their child actors.
A lot of Iranian Directors have shot some gorgeous films with child actors in the lead.....


Abbas Kiarostami: Wheres my friends home -(the earthquake trilogy)
Majid Majidi- Children of heaven . And - Colours of paradise
And a few other directors whose names i cant recall now...
aaah yes Jafar P..... something He made i think "the white balloon"

All of them have some gorgeous films with child actors....

They probably have the most memorable child performances ive ever seen.
I dont think they were shot 1: 1.85 though
Another great film made with street kids from Bombay and about them was "salaam bombay" by Mira Nair. Shes the lady who made "monsoon wedding".
