BABIES recharged the batteries in my biological clock

Last week, I was invited to a screening of the film, BABIES , by Focus Features . I have always enjoyed the films this production company puts out and BABIES was no exception.
Without much dialogue and with very little adult interaction, the cameras captured the first year in the life of four babies from four different regions of our world.
From Japan, San Francisco, Mongolia and Namibia, four very happy, healthy, and I dare say, hip, babies captured my heart, bringing me to tears many times. I found myself smiling beaming throughout the film as I recalled the early days of my son’s life.
The images captured in the movie poster (to the right) are just a small glimpse behind the emotions displayed by each of the four babies throughout their daily lives. Watching how each one of them interacts with the pets and animals in their surroundings along with the older children and adults is priceless; watching them sleep even more so.
I watched the official trailer a few times before the screening. I’ve watched it a few more after seeing the film. Is there anything cuter than naked babies exploring their new world?
Anyone who has ever had a baby, or been a baby will enjoy this film.
BABIES opens in theatres on May 7th, in time for Mother’s Day weekend.
