Watching Alfonso Cuaron's film Children of Men last week, an absolutely beautiful film, there were a few scenes that reminded me of two of Cuaron's previous films Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Y Tu Mama Tambien.

There is a playful car scene with Theo, Julian, Kee, Luke and Miriam. Julian is trying to catch a ping pong ball in her mouth. The playfulness and the close camera work reminded me of some of the car scenes in Y Tu Mama.

And there are a few scenes, including one in which Theo (and the viewer) view from a distance what happens to Michael Caine's Japser that completely reminded me of the whole Hermione and Harry rescuing Buckbeak from his execution sequence.
