Once upon a time, men tried to build a tower, the Tower of Babel, that went all the way up to the heavens. Angry at such an attempt, God disrupted their work for good by throwing in the trick of different languages and thus making communication impossible... The third of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘death trilogy’, Babel portrays the confused state of the world, divided by language, race, religions, wrestling with issues like terrorism and through it, he invites people to really begin understanding each other. The story travels from Santiago to Tokyo, tracing broken families amid a cacophony of dialects and urges us to rise beyond the manic modern world. Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett and Rinko Kikuchi deliver powerful performances. Babel is a notable attempt and a beautiful one at that. For producing a fi lm as stirring yet risky as Babel, Paramount Vantage deserves the Best Picture trophy, no questions asked.
