Babel

Just got back from watching Babel. Like Crash, it’s the kind of movie that gets your head spinning. The lives of a Mexican nanny and the two American children under her care in California & Mexico, an American couple in Morroco, and a Japanese business man and his teenage daughter in Tokyo, are all intertwined when two Morrocan kids decide to play with a rifle their father bought to keep the coyotes away from his sheep.

I won’t say much because it would spoil it for some. All I can say is that it is very powerful and it makes you question the senselessness of it all… How much that goes wrong in our life is due to miscommunication, from our inability to hear those around us?

Here’s the preview:

And for the filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu’s take on making the movie:

    Tambem lembrei do Crash. Babel e’ muito, muito bom, hein? mas achei as historias do Marrocos e Mexico mais bem amarradas uma com a outra do que o lance de Tokyo que me pareceu bonito, mas meio forcado….

    Concordo com vc… Eu imagino que ele quisesse incluir que a falta de comunicação não é necessáriamente algo que acontece somente entre culturas, mas que pode acontecer entre pessoas de uma mesma cultura. Mas ficou realmente meio forçado…

    E como eles retrataram bem a alfândega americana, viu? Eu continuo com pena da babá…
