A sweet movie of a difficult subject.
28 March 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Child by Children (2008) aka Kodomo no kodomo is a sweet movie. The two children involved, Hiro and Haruna aren't promiscuous, just inquisitive. They're only elementary school children after all. The teacher Ms. Yagi tries to introduce sex education to the class but the principal, the other teachers and the parents are against it. Little do they know that its too late anyway for little Haruna. The sex education does at least enlighten Haruna as to what has happened between herself and her playmate, Hiro. Haruna realises she is pregnant, and eventually all the children in the class know about it. A number of times there are attempts to notify the adults, but the adults are too busy or preoccupied to listen.

The entire class of students become involved, following the pregnancy and eventually end up delivering the baby.

Naturally when the parents and the teacher do find out (the baby has already been born) there is shock and surprise, but they eventually show love and acceptance.

Very good acting by all involved. The teacher in particular is very good, and one of the students, Mika is wonderful. She's only a child but is attractive and has real charisma. I hope to see her in future movies.

Despite the title and the storyline, this isn't a movie that will offend anyone. There is no titillating moments for perverts or voyeurs. I enjoyed it and give the movie 8/10.
