(Update: YouTube took it down, so here is the Babies trailer on Moviefone.com, all legal and whatnot.)

I can’t wait to see this documentary.

I suspect that “Babies” will provide some much needed perspective for neurotic U.S. moms like me. For example, lately I’ve been a bit worried about whether Stella will be completely safe when, over the holidays, we stay in a home with a very large dog. Meanwhile, in “Babies,” little Ponijao of Namibia plays on an open, dusty African plain and casually explores the open mouth of a dog. And in Mongolia, Bayarjargal travels in his mothers arms on a motorcycle and has his bath water stolen by a goat. How can you not fall in love with this film?

I wonder, will “Babies” focus only on the magic and wonder of babyhood, or attempt to reveal the full reality? Either way, I’m in. You had me at “Babies.”

    Too funny, I just shared this on fb. I’m in for the cinematography alone.
