Brings back memories
19 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

A straightforward and touching portrait of a great athlete.

Back in October 1981 my mother was playing in a national golf tournament and my aunt and uncle were looking after me for a couple of days. "Babe" was on TV that evening and the film has always stuck with me. The acting is perfectly done and the subject matter treated with great sensitivity.

Finally got to see it again tonight and the memories came flooding back - of me as a 9 year old anxiously waiting for his parents to come home while worrying about the fate of a great golfer and why this disease called cancer was so unfair.
