Babies Movie Review

Ponijao from Babies movie copyright Film in Focus

This Mother’s Day weekend, the Babies movie will hit theaters across the United States. Yesterday, courtesy of American Baby, Emilie & I had a sneak peek at Babies. From the trailers we saw and the articles we read we knew Babies would be a good movie, but we weren’t prepared for how good the movie would be. It was obvious from the “ohhh’s, ahhh’s and laughter in the audience that we weren’t the only ones who enjoyed it.

Babies chronicles the lives of four babies in different countries. It was amazing to see the differences in culture – Bayar was taken home on the back of a motorcycle after he was born! We are still in awe that his mom was able to ride a motorcycle after giving birth!  Yet despite some differences, other things are universal;  a mother’s love, sibling rivalry, the beauty of a baby’s smile, the joy of taking first steps and the list goes on.

The producers did an excellent job of “not getting in the way” and letting the babies lives unfold. It was as if the audience was an invisible presence in the sacred space of these families’ lives. Here at Kolcraft we give Babies movie 5 stars! (Here is one of our favorite scenes – Ponijao trying to sleep.)

A fun thing to do this Mother’s Day weekend is to see the Babies movie as a family and discuss it afterwords. We loved the movie so much, we are giving away a gift certificate so you can see the Babies movie on Kolcraft! All you have to do to enter our drawing is to follow us on Twitter or Facebook & then leave a comment under this post that you are following  Kolcraft on one or both of these social media platforms. We will draw a winner through random.org next Tuesday!
