A Beautiful Film!!,
This review is from: Babel [DVD] (DVD)
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started watching this film after reading the mixed reviews, but I must say this is a really beautifully directed and acted film. The film focuses on four different stories, which as the film progresses shows how they are all linked. Babel lasts for over 2 hours which might test some people's patience but I never felt bored. It is hard to explain, because I wouldn't say the film was gripping or exciting, but yet you couldn't help being engrossed in each story and really feeling for the characters. There isn't any `big' ending, with a lot of issues still unresolved which I found a bit frustrating. I would definitely recommend this film if you are looking for something thought provoking, maybe avoid if you like typical Hollywood films.
