      I went to see Babel not knowing anything about it more than it took place in Morocco and it was “kind of like the movie Crash”. Pretty quickly you can see how the movie is like “Crash” in that there are 4 storylines, seemingly unrelated, that you know somehow will converge.

      Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett play the main couple traveling


      in Morocco (story 1).

      Their children are at home in California with their Mexican nanny, who takes them to Mexico to a wedding when the parents are delayed in returning home (story 2).

      We see a family of goat-herders in the Moroccan desert.

      The father purchases a rifle with his two young sons to keep the coyotes away from the herd ...


      • (story 3).

        We also meet a deaf, rebellious, Japanese teenager who is still struggling, along with her wealthy business executive father, to cope with her mother’s suicide.

        The Japanese story is the last to get tied into the main storyline and it kept me guessing as to how it would fit it in the end.

        The beauty of this movie is

        the way the stories are woven together and at the end you can see how the characters, besides being connected by an event, are also connected by the struggles and emotions they share.

        This was a movie on the long-side, over 2 1/2 hours, but I didn’t even notice the time when the end had come.

        I highly recommend this one.
