Rating of
3.5/4 

The tragic aftermath of human carelessness travels around the world in this multi-narrative drama from filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu. Richard (Brad Pitt) and Susan (Cate Blanchett) are a couple from the United States who have traveled to Morocco in Northern Africa on a vacation after the death of one of their children has sent Susan into a deep depression. Richard and Susan's other two children have been left in the care of Amelia (Adriana Barraza), their housekeeper. This movie had four different characters in one whole movie and it works so perfectly and that's why this movie is a heavy drama. The acting is brilliant and the story is fantastic.

I thought this was absolutely incredible! Excellent film making in my opinion. Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu takes another multi-faceted story but this time, he perfects it! Babel is even better than his 21 Grams of 2003. The story is emotional; the characters are fascinating; the music is gripping and the script is wonderful. The acting is outstanding. How Jennifer Hudson won an Oscar over Rinko Kikuchi or Adriana Barraza I don't know, both were absolutely stunning, while Hudson doesn't even give the best performance in Dreamgirls. A great film about people and communication! Nominated for 7 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Babel is one of the best films of the great film year 2006!

"Babel" by Yojimbo

Babel tells the story of a group of individuals spanning three continents who are linked by the tragic accidental shooting of an American tourist. The obvious comparison for me to make with this film is the infamous Oscar winning Crash which shares many themes. Both films are based on cultural differences and prejudices and their impact on the lives of those involved. Both feature an anti-gun message. Both stories are structured around a series of rather unlikely coincidences. The only real difference between the two are that this film has more in the way of arthouse credibility. Because both films are also well acted, nicely directed, interesting stories. Yes, that's right. STORIES. Anyone who derides Crash as a piece of crap while at the same time holding Babel up as a work of art is ta...

Babel review

This is a film with numerous stories revolving around characters in various locations. A child named Yussef from Morocco accidentally shoots Susan (Cate Blanchett), wife of Richard (Brad Pitt). In Japan, Chieko Wataya (Rinko Kikuchi) is having difficulty coping up her mother’s death and fitting in with society because of being deaf and mute. Chieko meets Haruki and his friends and invites Detective Mamiya to her place. While in the US, Richard and Susan's Mexican nanny Amelia (Adriana Barraza) travels to Mexico to be present in her son’s wedding. She takes the children of Richard and Susan so she can take care of them. Santiago, her nephew, is the person who drives the car.

This picture depicted each countries respective culture and lifestyle well. It was convincing how the pe...
