I may have gone all soppy for babies since having one of my own, but this trailer for the forthcoming film Babies looks great. Following the lives of four children, from first breath to first steps it seems to revel in the innocence of these little creatures that will one day become adults.
However, the beauty of the film lies in its choice of children. With babies from Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco and Tokyo, there's a wonderful opportunity for us to see how different cultures cope with childbirth and how they raise their children. I have a fear that it might make our western approach to parenthood look very safe, sterile and commercial...
So, to all intents and purposes, Babies appears a bit like an arty version of You've Been Framed. I'm guessing everyone got more than £250 for taking part, though.
