View My Stats retziki girl strikes back: BABEL

Wednesday, April 25, 2007


"Babel", a movie with social content didn't impress me at all.It lasted almost 2 hours and a half and I can't say I didn't get bored.Only imagine that I almost slept in the first 10 minutes even if Brad Pitt starred in it.

The plot did confuse me very much.It was about four different families, an American, a Maroccan, a Mexican and a Japanese.They all deal with problems that don't seem to be combined at all but in the end we find out that there is a very strange connection between them.It was very difficult for me to understand this connection but what I think is that the film was made to express the idea that we are all the same.

As I pretold you, I didn't like it because first of all it was so long.I found it very confusing and really weird.Of course lots of my friends liked it very much because it has a special meaning but even if I share their opinion in the last part it wasn't what I expected to see.In many parts it reminded me of some documentaries and in some other parts it reminded me of some very bad quality movies.

On the other hand, I liked the fact that Brad Pitt acted as a very different character from all the other roles he has played since now and also I liked that for the first time in my life a movie did make me think about its meaning and the idea that is expressed through it for so long.

I recommend it to adults and teenagers(16 & 17 years old) because they won't get bored and will eventually understand the meaning and the idea expressed.I don't recommend it to children because it isn't a cartoon and they won't enjoy it at all...
