Babel is one of the most powerful and intense films of the year. It stars Brad Pitt in his most honest performance ever, the extraordinary Cate Blanchett and the always fascinating Gael Garcia Bernal. In the remote sands of the Moroccan desert, a rifle shot rings out ? detonating a chain of events that will link an American tourist couple, two Moroccan boys involved in an accidental crime, a nanny illegally crossing into Mexico with two American children and a Japanese teen rebel in Toyko. Separated by clashing cultures and sprawling distances, each of these people are nevertheless hurtling towards a shared destiny. 'Babel' explores the nature of the barriers, misunderstandings and ultimately the shared humanity of all mankind.
A masterpiece ? I was so electrified by ?Babel? that I went to see it again. - The New York Observer
