It's called 'Babies' and babies are exactly what you get in this new documentary. French director Thomas Balmes shows four infants -- from Japan, Mongolia, Namibia, and the United States -- as they step -- er, crawl, if you will -- into the world around them. It's a world of discovery and sensory perception as the tots grow and find out who they are.

Balmes includes no narration or special effects; just the kids from birth to walking age and the communities and cultures that surround them. It's the miracle of life, from the mundane to the magical. Just in time for Mother's Day, too.

French cinema star Alain Chabat is the producer. Read what the critics say:
