Storyline

Babel tells the story of the Babels, a strange breed of four-foot-tall creatures who once coexisted happily with human beings on planet Earth. However, when the humans built a huge tower to taunt God, he became angry and drove the Babels underground, while scattering the humans to the corners of the Earth and giving them different languages to keep them separate. Thousands of years later, three Babels are searching underground for the Babel Stone presented to them by God when they lose the map -- which is soon snapped up by a dog, who presents it to his master, an advertising man named Patrick. The Babels are desperate to recover the map, and they recruit Patrick's son David to help them find it (and the Babel Stone) before the evil Nemrod can steal the stone and claim its powers.

The meaning
13 July 2002 | by ZeA1889See all my reviews

I didn't really care much for the acting or the funny parts. Seriously I thought the funny parts were really corny. But I loved the meaning of this film. If I had to rate this movie from 1-10. I'd rate it 10(For what they were trying to tell us). I think everyone should see this cute film. Piece of advice when watching this movie. Don't just look at the acting and stuff. Look beyond that and look at what the staff and cast are trying to tell you. You'll like it better if you do.
