Playful, unique but light documentary
9 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An enjoyable, charming, heartwarming documentary about babies around the globe and the difference, similarity on their life as a baby. This was a nicely photographed film and a pretty memorable one at that but it kind of bothered me that there wasn't much dialogue or narration and when there was in different countries there wasn't any subtitles which was a bummer because I was really interested on what other cultures talk about on an normal everyday basis and their input on parenting and because of that it made the pacing sometimes sluggish with a series of clips that you could probably find on youtube or home videos but that still doesn't make it lose its charm. Overall there isn't much else I can say about Babies, it wasn't a brilliant documentary but a very adorable one that will lift your spirits high and I recommend it for mothers or parents to be but that's pretty much it. Worthy of a rental. More of a 2.5 out of 5 stars.
