Movie Info

The city is already so vast and growing at such a speed that soon light itself will not escape its gravitational pull. How then can two lovers communicate, one from inside the city the other outside? This is an elegy to urban life, a portrait of a city of the future, constructed from moving images collected all around the world from science, technology, industry and architecture.


Critic Reviews for Babeldom

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

  • Perhaps it's a nightmarish vision of a world gone askance. Whatever it is, Babeldom is a visual treat.

  • As a philosophical statement it lacks freshness, and voiceover artist Mark Caven's overcooked delivery doesn't help. One for fans of the form, perhaps.

  • Paul Bush's debut feature-length film is a fascinating meditation on the cities of the future.

  • Invigorating, challenging and extremely provocative. And extremely articulate to boot!

    Mar 7, 2013 | Rating: 4/5
  • At its best, Babeldom recalls Chris Marker's La Jetée, Fritz Lang's Metropolis and Dziga Vertov's Man with a Movie Camera -- but like the modern city, is harsh, unyielding and emotionally distant.

  • Ambitious, gorgeous, and often as impenetrable as an algebraic equation.
