Selon la Bible, Babel fut une célèbre tour construite par une humanité unie pour atteindre le paradis. Cette entreprise provoqua la colère de Dieu, qui pour les séparer, fit parler à chacun des hommes impliqués une langue différente, mettant ainsi fin au projet et répandant sur la Terre un peuple désorienté et incapable de communiquer. Quatre histoires entremêlées dont l'action se déroule dans un pays différent : le Maroc, le Mexique, le Japon et la Tunisie. L'une d'entre elles commence par un événement tragique, qui arrive à un couple marié lors de ses vacances au Maroc. Réal : Alejandro González Iñárritu Sortie (France) : 15 novembre 2006

Babel: n. 1. In the Bible, a famous tower built by a united humanity to reach toward heaven, causing God in his anger to make each person involved speak different languages, halting the project and scattering a confused and disconnected people across the planet. In the remote sands of the Moroccan desert, a rifle shot rings out – detonating a chain of events that will link an American tourist couple's frantic struggle to survive, a nanny illegally crossing into Mexico with two American children and a Japanese teen rebel whose father is sought by the police in Tokyo. Separated by clashing cultures and sprawling distances, each of these four disparate groups of people are nevertheless hurtling towards a shared destiny of isolation and grief. In the course of just a few days, they will each face the dizzying sensation of becoming profoundly lost – lost in the desert, lost to the world, lost to themselves – as they are pushed to the farthest edges of confusion and fear as well as to the very depths of connection and love. In this mesmerizing and emotional film shot in three continents and spoken in four languages, acclaimed director Alejandro González Iñárritu (21 Grams,Amores Perros) brings back the ancient concept of BABEL to question its modern day implications: the mistaken identities, misunderstandings and missed chances for communication that, though often unseen, drive our modern lives. Babel explores the nature of the barriers and misunderstandings that seem to separate mankind).
