I saw it today and I really liked it. There were very sweet parts of the movie and I loved the ways in which baby-hood is universal. I really loved how sweet the African siblings were to each other.
I would have liked a bit of narration. I wondered what the African folks were eating when they ate that white stuff, did the Mongolian family eat any vegetables? Was Hattie in the NICU? Was that day care in Japan where there were lots of babies crying seemingly without parents around? I was under the impression from Our Babies, Ourselves that Japanese families co-sleep, but they didn't seem to. Maybe it's a city thing not to co-sleep? But maybe narration would have detracted from the movie.
The babies were all beautiful, but I fell in love with the Mongolian baby and the African baby. (I can't remember their names and I'm sure I will mis-spell Namibia.)
