This was kind of a fun movie. It follows four different babies from very different parts of the world. It was interesting to see the differences in ways of growing up. It was good.

An experience akin to staring at an aquarium for 80 minutes and observing the fishes in their habitat - which can be something interesting in the case of babies from different cultures, only not for so long. But still, babies are so cute and adorable that they make it worth it.

Cute, very cute, but also kind of boring.

A wonderful film that utilizes little to no dialogue, yet still manages to tell a compelling story.

this documentary follows 4 babies from 4 countries and shows the different lifestyles ranging from gross (African mother wiping the babies bottom on her leg) to the absurd, American mother taking infant to exercise classes.

Alright, but really boring for a 1 hr and 19 min movie.

It's a simple idea really. No script, no camera crew just mount a camera and watch babies do stuff. I know that doesn't sound great, but it's pretty awesome. There's cute widdle cheeks you just wanna pinch.

Oh and for the perves the African ladies have their boobs out all the time.

Babies is ear shattering bad with an hour and a half of quote on quote cute babies whining their brains out. Just think of those internet videos strung together with better photography. I'm serious this is it, no narrative, no story, just crying. A definite skip. (BTW I watched this in school not on my own time)

Something To Talk Through While You Watch, Observe & Learn How Lucky You Are, Just To Be Alive.

This movie is about cuteness, faith, and differentiation. Make you explore about that three aspects.

Plays like a collection of well-lensed home videos. Its message is obvious after about twenty minutes and none of the clips are particularly compelling. In short, it's a bore.

Home videos of babies is not enough to make a movie worth seeing twice.

Simple, insightful, funny, and moving. It's telling that a documentary with no words can still convey so much information and establish such wonderful appreciation for humanity and the way various cultures care for their young.

Absolutely adorable.

Lots of fun and very eye opening, especially with no dialog!

Too cute! I was rooting for all these babies when they took their first steps. The biggest thing that stuck out to me is how we coddle and sanitize in the Western world, yet conditions are VERY different in Nambia and Mongolia, and everyone seems to survive just fine.

Four babies from four different parts of the world in their first year of life. Yes, the babies are cute, but this got very boring very quickly.

It may not be lovable like the title and also lacks insights, but it was well filmed capturing moments to have the audience enjoy it like enjoying the real thing in this very cultural documentary that shows what's life about on these babies. (C+)

The name pretty much says it all here, as we follow four newborns from vastly different cultures through the first year of their lives. Without a spot of narration or even so much as a subtitle track for the non-English segments, it's a classic case of a film allowing its viewers to take whatever they want from it. As a relatively new parent myself, I was fascinated by the day-to-days of the two rural babies - one from the dust of west Africa, the other the grassy fields of Mongolia - and how completely alien their surroundings and practices seem from my comfortable perch here in the first world. It's tastefully filmed, with a particular emphasis on artistic framing and long, captivating shots of unsupervised children at play, encountering and discovering their world one step at a time. My young boys absolutely loved it, but at this point they'll watch almost anything with a cute face or two. Nice eye candy with a hint of deeper meaning, but not a show-stopper.
