We got out a couple of movies to watch, one of them was Babel. We got them home and a friend of Oscar’s, Niko, mentioned he had seen Babel and it was good, but deep and not humourous.

What a shock we were in for… A fantastic movie that I recommend everyone see. Amazing story line, fantastic acting and a deep message that leaves you with the realisation that one event can have repercussions that affect and flow through so many peoples lives.

One of the recurrent themes was impaired communication. From foreign language to deafness, the characters found themselves trying to communicate with those who didn’t understand or didn’t want to understand.

An amazing touching movie that left me upset as I felt so much for the characters. In my book a response like that to a movie signals a success.
