Babel (R2) in May - Artwork added
Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Babel for 21st May 2007. Shot in three continents and four languages Babel traverses both the deeply personal and the explosively political. Acclaimed director Alejandro González Iñárritu (21 Grams, Amores Perros) explores with shattering realism the nature of the barriers that seem to separate humankind. In doing so, he evokes the ancient concept of Babel and questions its modern day implications: the mistaken identities, misunderstandings and missed chances for communication that, though often unseen, drive our contemporary lives. Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Gael García Bernal, Kôji Yakusho, Adriana Barraza and Rinko Kikuchi lead an international ensemble of actors and non-professional actors from Morocco, Tijuana and Tokyo.
Available in One-Disc (£19.99) and Two-Disc (£22.99) editions the latter includes “Common Ground: Under Construction Notes” – a 90 minute feature length making-of video diary from director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu.
