My Last Valentine in Beirut Facing Censorship Issues

Posted By :

The order of nurses in Lebanon has apparently filed a complaint against Salim el Turk’s movie “My Last Valentine in Beirut” as they felt disrespected by few scenes of the movie, which has been showing for only 2 weeks now. Salim el Turk stated that he didn’t receive any official letter yet and that he’s against any type of censorship.

What’s next? Ask the authorities to confiscate all the naughty nurse costumes for Halloween and Barbara?

We have officially reached a new level of stupidity in Lebanon.

    i havent watched the movie, so i can’t judge the quality of the movie, but a trailer is supposed to give u a glimpse about the movie’s story and characters and what not. after watching the linked video, i still don’t understand what the movie is about. is it the diary of a prostitute? is it an action movie? a musical?

    This movie is the worse i’ve ever seen in my life. Lack of story and mediocre acting. People were literally leaving the theater throughout the show. At the end of it, a handful remained. Watch it and you will know what I mean

    Walla it’s a good policy that every filmmaker should do in Lebanon!
    Make a controversial seen to get free publicity and then edit that seen!

    not only, we released the film with 30 minutes removed which made the story in parts irrlevant , but now the syndicate of nursing wants us to remove more than 15 minutes,,
    so if you calculate the film was 1 hour 50 minutes,,, only 1 hour 20 minutes released, and now they want us to remove another 15 minutes, which will destroy what remained from the story

    Ok people come on now

    So typical … Lebanese people found it an opportunity to blame the lebanese cinema and the “te32id” of the lebanese people ..why don’t you start talking politics now and link it to “wade3 el balad”

    I do encourage the media to become open in talking and showing these kind of movies and stating the facts that we often refuse to admit but its all present in our society nevertheless i am sure that the movie could be done in a better way

    I mean you had the budget to do the movie and 3D ( wow….) so why don’t you try to send a message or make your point in a plot and more meaningful way

    I have to say it bluntly …the movie ( dono if its a movie or documentary)was so bad,boring and lacks a plot but i would give a chance to the filmmamker to try at least another production with better plot better actors and a daring topic

    Better luck next time
