Especially my 4 year old girl loves this documentary. For me it was nice to watch once, but she has watched it at least five times. She loves babies, but is also interested in the cultural differences of the people shown.


Exploring the world of its tiny heroes in locations that are worlds apart – the Namibian savannah, the Mongolian steppe, a Japanese megalopolis and sunny California – Babies makes a universal statement with strength and passion. Babies is a visual and sensorial experience that will reveal the most basic human emotions. Apart from establishing shots of locations and seasons, and close-ups of the baby's physical environment, the film is composed of the unique moments that, as every parent knows, punctuate a child's first year and tell a fascinating story. Every shot tells a story by its content and its framing, confronting the baby with a world that seems gigantic, potentially hostile or simply needing to be explored.

Special Features:

  • The babies – Three years on
  • Theatrical trailer
