499. Baby Story – Bruno Bozzetto

Hedgehog-in-the-Fog-2

SUMMARY: A wombs-eye view of how a baby is born, from conception to birth.

WHY IT’S HERE: Bruno Bozzetto ended the 70s with one of his most purely enjoyable shorts, ‘Baby Story’, which shows the development of a baby from the point of conception to birth. In actual fact, the conception portion lasts over half the length of the film but is never smutty, instead sticking to scientifically correct details, albeit humorously depicted. The effects of contraception are particularly memorable. Unlike his previous ‘Striptease’, ‘Baby Story’ is not an adults only film and, in fact, could be used to help teach sex education to children, provided suitable context was established!
