Babel* stars Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Gael García Bernal, Mohamed Akhzam, and Peter Wight. This multi-narrative psychological drama is written by Guillermo Arriaga and directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu. Babel completes the writer and director's Death Trilogy, following the films Amores Perros and 21 Grams. The trilogy is deeply rooted in humanistic relations and values, putting its characters in situations that test human frailty, ethics, resilience, and redemption. From Morocco to Japan, Mexico, and the United States, Babel weaves a common thread through multiple storylines. The film examines relationships and the role of government and its behavior toward people in the lower socioeconomic class across multiple countries, showing how one human action can scale to have a global impact.
