Movie Review-Babies

 If you like babies or even learning about other cultures, this is a fascinating documentary.  By Thomas Balmes, it follows the early development of four babies from different parts of the world.  It starts with the birth of four babies from Namibia, Mongolia, Japan, and the United States and follows the babies until a little over the age of one.  It is a great illustration of how different cultures are, yet how similar and precious human life is.  Without narration and very little dialogue the film really capturea the preciousness of these four babies with simply filming their actions, interactions with others, and expressions.  It is a wonderful film and I highly recommend it!
