#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – 4 interlocking stories all connected by a single gun all converge at the end and reveal a complex and tragic story of the lives of humanity around the world and how we truly aren’t all that different. In Morocco, a troubled married couple are on vacation trying to work out their differences. Meanwhile, a Moroccan herder buys a rifle for his sons so they can keep the jackals away from his herd. A girl in Japan dealing with rejection, the death of her mother, the emotional distance of her father, her own self-consciousness, and a disability among many other issues, deals with modern life in the enormous metropolis of Tokyo, Japan. Then, on the opposite side of the world the married couple’s Mexican nanny takes the couple’s 2 children with her to her son’s wedding in Mexico, only to come into trouble on the return trip. Combined, it provides a powerful story and an equally powerful looking glass into the lives of seemingly random people around the world and it shows just how connected we really are.
Plot: Tragedy strikes a married couple on vacation in the Moroccan desert, touching off an interlocking story involving four different families.

interesting, complex tale
The film opens in the Moroccan desert: an elderly tribesman trades a high-powered rifle to a goat herder for 500 diram & a goat. He hands the rifle to his two young sons and tells them to kill jackals with it, to protect the herd. As practice, the start shooting at rocks, a car passing on the hill below, and finally a bus. That’s the only thing they manage to hit, putting a bullet through the shoulder of a tourist. In the middle of nowhere, there’s no medical help, and no one wants to wait with the injured person except her husband. That’s the setup of this complex, challenging film. It splits into four related stories, one in Japan, two in Morocco, and the last in California, where a housekeeper has to get to her son’s wedding in Mexico, but has no one to watch the two children in her care. She decides to take them along, and of course things go sour. A good cast, great acting, fine cinematography, and expert direction make this film well worth watching. It’s not for everyone, but for people who are ready to see deliberately paced low-key thriller, this is one good film. The split story line is reminiscent of “Syriana,” but in no way copies it.
It might as well have been a silent movie
most of it was anyway. You didn’t need subtitles or speaking roles to get the true impact the director Alejandro González Iñárritu (21 Grams, Amores Perros) intended. Babel was definitely 2006’s CRASH, only more subtle. The message within the movie is that pain is universal but we did not need a movie to tell us that or do we?
Babel begins it’s tale with a poor family living in rural Morroco. A friend of the father in the household brings a rifle to sell to the family. The father purchases the weapon with some ammunition and (perhaps ill-decidedly) hands it over to his two teenage sons to go and shoot jackals. Children being children and boys being boys, the two end up aiming and shooting a passing vehicles on a nearby road, one of which is tour bus carrying a grieving couple Richard and Susan played Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett (it is later revealed that they are grieving the death of their infant son). One of the bullets ends up hitting Susan (Blanchett) the one person who hated being in Morroco in the first place. Richard (Pitt) frantically tries to save her life in an adventurous bid to get help in a forgotten land that takes him to depths of despair and ultimately tests the limits of his love for his wife as well as their union.
Meanwhile, miles away in Tokyo, a young and deaf woman named Chieko (played by Rinko Kikuchi) is going through the motions with her life as a teenager who refuses to be handicapped by her handicap. If you’re wondering what this young woman’s life has to do with the storyline, don’t worry because the link will be revealed later. Nevertheless, this storyline will prove to be the most faulty and mysterious of all the story lines present in the film. Trust me, I still have questions.
Back home in America, Amelia (played by Adriana Barraza) the maid caring for Richard and Susan’s children has a dilemma of her own. Her son is getting married in Mexico but because of the unforeseen circumstances keeping Susan and Richard in Morocco, she is forced to make a decision that will cost her big time in the long run. IMHO the performance of this woman was perhaps the single most noteworthy performance in the entire film. Don’t get me wrong Pitt and Blanchett were great, as was Kikuchi, but Barraza’s performance stood out like a secret in plain view. If Babel does nothing at all, it will make you think and it certainly has got people talking. Its only flaw was perhaps the forced tying of all the stories and people together in the end, which made it seem a bit far-fetched but that’s okay, no one and nothing is perfect. See it for the great performances and cinematographic artistry. Ignore the sketchy story lines. A-
