Looking for a feel-good movie? This documentary is a must-see. Watch as four babies from around the globe grow, learn, and love during their first year of life on this planet. Recommended for nervous first-time parents, or anyone who needs a reminder of the blessings of life.

Beautiful, engaging and realistic, accomplished without any narration.

Fascinating look at the cross cultural similarities and differences of raising babies. Very entertaining.

An un-narrated voyeuristic look at --- what else? -- babies. It just shows four different babies, each from different parts of the world. The Mongolian and African babies experience childhood in what is a poorly developed part of the world. They don't have fancy soothers or baby socializing classes, like the babies from Japan and California would. It's less interesting to watch these cooing curious creatures crawl around the floor and far more interesting to witness how different parts of the world raise their young. A brief TV special on something like the Discovery channel would suffice; a feature film is just too long and dull.

This is a great movie to watch. I would recomend it for Moms with young children or any person that loves babies. I really enjoyed watching the babies grow up. This film does have a few shots or bare breasts and natural nudity but that is about it. It's very interesting to see each baby grow up in their country and how their lives are all different.

I enjoyed it. It was relaxing and funny and cute. What is there not to love about babies?

This movie was very cute and entertaining :)

Engrossing and brilliant. We watched this right after my first child was born. It was such an eye opener for a new high strung mother. Highly recommended.
