babel

I can’t quite sleep. I don’t know why Babel actually has such an effect on me. It’s along the line of this other movie that’s really similar and won awards too. Anyway, that’s not why,. It’s actually quite depressing, although maybe it’s not supposed to be all that depressing.

I’m not going to go through what happens, but chiefly, it’s all these people speaking different languages living in each little worlds and when they clash, nobody seems to be able to communicate with anybody, although each of them experience all these similar human emotions, love and pain. I think the girl who is deaf and use sign language is actually the oen that leaves th emost impression. I just feel it’s so depressing that all the other people don’t even seem to try to break into other people’s world. They hold fast onto their own set of lenses, and cannot break away. The most affecting scene was when the girl was in this club, and the perspective keeps on shifting from the girl’s perspective and the outside. She is trying so hard to combine these two. I don’t actually know if you would call she succeeded in doing so. I can almost hear someone pounding on the wall of the tower of Babel.

This girl tries and she probably fails, but I wonder what she wrote on the piece of paper at the end. Everyone else, can’t seem to go as far. Everyone in this world are like insects trapped in each of their bubbles but these bubbles keep crashing, and nobody seems to know what’s going on. It’s just so depressing… I wonder really… how…
