Babies

 (2010)

Babies Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Everybody loves... BABIES. This visually stunning new movie simultaneously follows four babies around the world - from first breath to first steps. From Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, BABIES joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all. The children are, respectively, in order of on-screen introduction: Ponijao, who lives with her family near Opuwo, Namibia; Bayarjargal, who resides with his family in Mongolia, near Bayanchandmani; Mari, who lives with her family in Tokyo, Japan; and Hattie, who resides with her family in the United States, in San Francisco.

For more about Babies and the Babies Blu-ray release, see Babies Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Bayer, Hattie, Mari, Ponijao

Babies Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Babies takes its first step on Blu-ray with a somewhat unremarkable yet wholly sufficient 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer; one that rises with Jérôme Alméras, Frazer Bradshaw, Steeven Petitteville and Eric Turpin's photography but stumbles a bit with intermittent softness, noise and other minor (presumably inherent) issues. Colors are generally strong and stable -- the amber hues of Namibia are as warm as an African sunrise, the rustic interiors of rural Mongolia are rich and earthy, the bright skies of Tokyo cast the sprawling city in sharp blues and grays, and the cushy primaries of San Francisco are inviting -- but not entirely consistent. Both clarity and vibrancy take a hit in poorly lit scenes, the harsh lighting of the natural environments takes its toll and the image is occasionally washed out and underwhelming. Contrast is a tad uneven as well, and black levels range from ashy to inky, sometimes in the span of seconds. Granted, the majority of these so-called mishaps trace back to Balmès' cameras and his team's unobtrusive documentary filmmaking, but it still makes for a less-than-breathtaking presentation. Heavy shadows are teeming with bearable noise, several establishing shots and closeups are inexplicably soft, ringing and aliasing are at play throughout, and other admittedly negligible anomalies pop up here and there. None of it is distracting, at least not outright. None of it is debilitating, at least as documentary presentations go. In the end, Babies fans will be pleased. Others will simply shrug their shoulders and wonder, again, what all the fuss is about.


Babies Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Like the feature film itself, Babies' DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is playful, succinct and minimalistic. Not that I'm complaining. Background voices are fairly unintelligible, but they aren't meant to be crystal clear. Every coo and gurgle is crisp, clean and deftly prioritized, every rattle shake and hands-on experiment gone awry is given the full support of the speakers, and Bruno Coulais' impish score bounds from one channel to the next, swelling and retreating with nimble ease. Better still, the whole of the soundfield is full and engaging. Not exactly immersive, mind you, but more than adequate for the task at hand. As low-key, front-heavy documentaries go, Universal's lossless track delivers the goods and draws listeners into every bright, bubbly, wide-eyed misadventure the soon-to-be-toddling tots experience. Ultimately, Balmès' intentions are intact, as is the integrity of his team's simplistic sound design. I couldn't ask for much more.
