Babies by Thomas Balmès( Visual )

The adventure of a lifetime begins ... with babies. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmes, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, this visually stunning film follows four babies during their first year on earth - from first breath to first steps. Across borders and cultures, from Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, Babies re-defines the nonfiction art form and joyfully captures the earliest stages of the human journey that are both unique and universal to us all. Exploring the world of its tiny heroes in locations that are worlds apart - the Namibian savannah, the Mongolian steppe, a Japanese megalopolis and sunny California - Babies makes a universal statement with strength and passion. Babies is a visual and sensorial experience that will reveal the most basic human emotions. Apart from establishing shots of locations and seasons, and close-ups of the baby's physical environment, the film is composed of the unique moments that, as every parent knows, punctuate a child's first year and tell a fascinating story. Every shot tells a story by its content and its framing, confronting the baby with a world that seems gigantic, potentially hostile or simply needing to be explored

"In this chilling adaptation of the best-selling novel by Thomas Harris, the astonishingly versatile director Jonathan Demme crafted a taut psychological thriller about an American obsession: serial murder. As Clarice Sterling, an FBI trainee who enlists the help of the infamous Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter to gain insight into the mind of another killer, Jodie Foster subverts classic gender dynamics and gives one of the most memorable performances of her career. As her foil, Anthony Hopkins is the archetypal antihero--cultured, quick-witted, and savagely murderous--delivering a harrowing portrait of humanity gone terribly wrong. A gripping police procedural and a disquieting immersion into a twisted psyche, The Silence of the Lambs swept the Academy Awards (best picture, director, screenplay, actress, actor) and remains a cultural touchstone"--Container
