365 Movies Day #69 "Babies"
An ingenious idea for a documentary. Take four babies from four entirely different cultures (Mongolia, Tokyo, San Francisco and Namibia) and follow the first year of each of their lives. A wonderful display of diversity and four incredibly cute kids.
There's no tragedy or craziness, just a slice of life view of these four babies and their families.
If you want a feel good film and a great family friendly experience (my girls both loved it), then check out "Babies". A few interesting points are the lack of subtitles and narration. It's just a series of raw moments, but you feel the story. Also great to see how similar the babies and family dynamics are despite the vast difference in cultures. A real treat.
