If you think it’s bad when crying babies interrupt your summer-movie fun, try watching a summer movie about crying babies. The new documentary chronicles the first year in the lives of babies in Namibia, Mongolia, Tokyo and San Francisco. The goal is to point out how incredibly similar the lives of mostly immobile, barely sentient and wholly dependent beings are, whether they live in huts or well-appointed lofts. Babies really is just strung-together moments from the early lives of four kids. That’s it. Not much to figure out here. On the plus side, the photography, particularly in the Namibian sequences, is sometimes breathtaking.
