Children of the Stork is a collection of situation which allow the author to inject social commentary. It deals with the issue of how capitalism dehumanizes its workers. This idea is shown through the situation of Otto and Louna two unemployed proletarians driven to the ends of their tither. One of three main characters is a young Algerian immigrant. This allows the director to explore the situation of Arabs form Algeria immigrating to France. These's two major issues are set upon the background of the Algerian war and the social upheaval undergoing in France(Intensified class war).
The situations are loosely interconnected formulating a plot but this comes secondary to the anti-Bolshevik Marxian slogans and cometary. (It's got the whole "Humanity won't be happy till the last capitalist is hung with the guts of the last bureaucrat" (May 68 graffiti) feel to it). It makes some very interesting points and reminds me of Kafka but with a hope that is quite liberating. Very much worth a look!
