I liked this film and the concept of the universality of kids' development even though not all of them have the benefit of classes or the latest in fancy toys / products. i would have liked it to be even more universal (maybe add a south american and/or middle eastern child?) but the theme still comes through.

it's a nice film, going to borrow it again. We watched it with our baby when he was 3 months - he liked it. It will be interesting to see what his reaction is going to be when he is 1 year old.

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.

Definitely not for everyone (as the other comments here show), but I personally found this movie fascinating. I'm the mum of a toddler, very interested in other cultures and the 'bigger picture', and generally get a kick out of kids. Eye-opening and charming, and a kick in the pants to take my parenting self a bit less seriously.

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.

I loved this film. It was a learning experience to see how other children are raised in completely different cultures. I do not agree with the notice to beware of sexual content. There are pictures of women going about their lives where it is not part of their culture to hide their breasts. I hardly see this as sexual content. Great movie well worth watching.

This is a fabulous documentary following four babies from different cultures. Very fascinating to watch these babies navigate through their environment. Excellent!
