Babies: A Sociocultural Documentary
8 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just got back from seeing Babies (Bebes) at my local movie theater. It examines the first year of four babies' lives in four diverse nations. There was no narration, which was a blessing, and nothing was translated. Thus, it was a true look at these babies' lives without any apparent biases, mistranslations, etc. I felt like I was back in my sociocultural ethnography class in college learning to view without judging and learn from each group. I would have liked more cohesion or purpose and the film may have been better if it had had a culminating milestone for each child at the end, but what was there was very good.

If you can appreciate other cultures for what they are and go in without judgment, this is a documentary for you. It also has extreme elements of cuteness, so if you want the "aww" factor, this may be a good movie for you. Unfortunately quite a few viewers in my audience were close minded and had a hard time viewing the film without making comments about what they viewed as poor parenting, so that is something to watch for if you go to see it in the theater.
