Babel is a long film, very long, and full of tension, very full. There's also a little of confusion, but it's the title itself to warn you about that. But above all, Babel is a fascinating movie that digs into human condition bringing it back to the origins, to that Tower of Babel where people spoke different languages but shared the same feelings of the whole mankind: fear, love, sexuality, the restlessness of youth, despair, relationship between parents and children. In four places of the world, four stories are intertwined like threads of a one only texile, thanks to a frantic direction and good actors: not only Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett in their desperate situation but - for example - Rinko Kikuchi that doesn't say a word but tells so much. Moreover (but I think it's just a personal note) in that alternating of different languages there's such a musicality that no other movie has. Eventually, Babel is a real pleasure for eyes and ears.
