Top Fifteen Movie moments 15. Babel – Ending
This ending plays out using music as the centerpiece. I’ve heard it endlessly argued that no father would react that way to seeing his daughter naked on a balcony. But if you’re wife had shot herself in the head, you might not have the knee jerk reaction everyone seems to think is natural.
