Saw the movie Babel and my rating is ‘OK’. The way the movie is shot is very good though. But the story he weaves to make his point is pretty feeble. His point is that in this world today we speak so many languages …..but are yet so connected to each other. Globalisation and the movement of people across the globe affects us in more way than one. The name ‘Babel’ is biblical and refers to the tower of Babel …………….which was a challenge to God in the old testament. Eventually God made the builders start speaking different languages and they couldn’t understand each other. So the tower collapsed eventually. Apart from the language part of this biblical tale there doesn’t seem to be any connection.
