Synopsis

Play means to me an act of freeing from the world I am entangled in. It alienates the times we are living in, but for children, it is a part of their everyday life and means the life itself. Children find a new play everywhere, create it and naturally enter the world of imagination. I am full of envy of their time mysterious and good.

Review

We have the most fun when we play. That’s just the way it is. However, as we grow older we push aside the fun of playing and only regard it as a reward for a special occasion. The director of Playing Children has decided to capture on camera scenes of children playing. It’s pointless to research and explain the reason why flowers are beautiful. It’s best to show them directly. Children play enthusiastically everywhere, find toys in anything, come up with new games, and step into a world of imagination. The film proves that a depiction of their innocent energy is itself a valuable work. The analyses and opinions of grown-ups inserted in the middle of the film seem to come from a high watchtower. It’s higher up from the ground where children are playing, which makes us slightly dizzy at first. Yet, the difference in height reminds us once again of the importance of playing. The narrator stands between the children on the ground and the grown-ups on the high watchtower. What is going through the director’s mind as the camera observes the two places? [AHN Seulki]
