These mothers were what mothers should be like.
It is dishearting to see children born to satisfy the needs of a woman and that the child is not the most important element in the equation.

good movie, but now worth $7.50.

Babies reminds me of a National Geographic documentary without any voiceover. If you saw the trailer, then you know exactly what this movie is about. It follows the first year or so of 4 babies in different parts of the world. While I truly enjoyed watching each of these little ones grow up in their different environments, the film did not transition well. The filmmaker made such an effort to make it a pure documentary that it just didn't flow. I would still recommend this film because it shows how strong human beings are to grow and thrive in any kind of environment as long as there is emotional and physical nourishment.

Yes, OK, we get it, babies are cute. The first half hour or so of this movie is literally the camera trained on one of the four babies and capturing them as they soak in their environment. After a while, it gets quite dull. Once the kids start to crawl and walk and eventually talk, it does become a bit more watchable, but at that point, you're either bored out of your mind or wondering just how much longer this movie is going to go on. Most people I've talked to love the Mongolian baby. Me, I liked Mari and the Nigerian babies.
