Babe ... the Best Film Ever!

I almost didn't see the first Babe film in the theatre. Mostly I ignored its great reviews and terrific word-of-mouth acclaim. Cynically, thought I, this was a movie about a talking pig! Eventually I gave in and saw Babe at a second-run theatre.

Babe changed my life forever

I saw Babe four more times in the theatre. I gave up pork, ham, bacon, prosciutto and all other porcine products. I used it as a teaching tool to discuss freedom, tradition and political obligation with my students. Most of all, Babe made me recall what I knew as a child and had learnt to forget as an adult: that wonder is the core of the encounter between the human and animal species, that dreams should be held close, that everyone, even your enemy, needs a second chance.

What is Babe all about?

The first Babe film depicts the quest of a young orphaned pig, Babe, to become a sheep pig.
In the second film, Babe embarks on quest in the city to save the farm.

This website is very much under construction. While it's being developed, here are some pictures to look at.
