I finally went to see Nadine Labaki’s movie yesterday and I absolutely loved it!
It is by far the best movie I’ve seen this year and the best Lebanese movie ever produced. The characters, the plot, the music, the locations chosen, everything was just perfect!
There are a lot of funny scenes despite the drama involved, and I felt the movie was short despite being 110 minutes long.
Nevertheless, there are two things I did not appreciate in the movie:
- All men are portrayed as being irrational and impulsive and sometimes dumb while all women are wise and intelligent and can easily manipulate and trick their men.
- Lebanese Muslim & Christian women, living in distant villages, will NEVER go down to the city to bring back Ukrainian strippers/hookers to keep their husbands and the villages’ men entertained.
Still, those are minor details when we look at the whole movie which is simply brilliant!
I highly recommend it to all and I will definitely be watching it a second time soon.
PS: The movie scored a well deserved 7.4 on imdb and there are some nice reviews which you can read [Here].
