Babel Neglects Deaf Audience

The Oscar nominated movie, Bable, has a deaf Japanese woman character who struggles to communicate with her father. The irony is that Japanese deaf moviegoers couldn’t follow the movie as explained ‘Babel’ ignores deaf audience. Variety also has a report.
Embarrassing, but not surprising overssight.


  1. yup I noticed that!! they should have subtitled the entire movie as far as im concerned, I enjoyed the movie, but the fact that there is a deaf girl in one of the stories i thought the english parts should have been dubbed too!
    great movie tho!
