Movie of the week - BABEL
I know it is not a new movie. Was screened around 2006 but just got a chance to watch it and also by accident due to I found this DVD at one of the charity sale.
I admit it was Brad Pitt that makes me buy the DVD ;). Lagipun Cate Blanchett ada berlakon sama.
Anyway refer to this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babel_(film) for the synopsis.
"Babel is a 2006 international drama film directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and written by Guillermo Arriaga, starring an ensemble cast. The multi-narrative drama completes Iñárritu's Death Trilogy, following Amores perros and 21 Grams.
The film portrays multiple stories taking place in Morocco, Japan, Mexico, and the United States. It was an international co-production among companies based in France, Mexico and the US. The film was first screened at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, and was later shown at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Zagreb Film Festival. It opened in selected cities in the United States on October 27, 2006, and went into wide release on November 10, 2006. On January 15, 2007, it won the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture — Drama. It was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and two nominations for Best Supporting Actress and won for Best Original Score."
Thought: Interesting plot. The best scene i like is when Richard (Brad Pitt, the husband) help her wife, Susan (Cate Blanchett) to pee into the pan and when Brad talks on the phone to his son and crying. So touching.... sob sob.
