Details

Directed by award-winning film-maker Thomas Balmès, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, this film simultaneously follows four babies around the world - from birth to first steps. The children are, in order of on-screen introduction: Ponijao, who lives with her family near Opuwo, Namibia; Bayarjargal, who resides with his family in Mongolia, near Bayanchandmani; Mari, who lives with her family in Tokyo, Japan; and Hattie, who resides with her family in the United States, in San Francisco. Re-defining the non-fiction art form, Babies joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

Great snapshot at cultures and human nature, simple and fun choreography and long shots. Edited well. Kept me interested...

  • The biggest smiles are on the kids playing in the dust - not the ones in the expensive baby bouncers.

  • Amazing footage, a beautiful message for new fretful parents
