Babel (R1) in February
Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Babel for 20th February 2007 priced at $29.99 SRP.. 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.
A barebones release, the film is presented in Anamorphic Widescreen with English (DD5.1 & DD2.0 Surround) and French (DD5.1 Surround) audio options and English and Spanish subtitle options.
