While having dinner at Basma restaurant, they were showing an old Lebanese movie that i haven’t seen anywhere before.
I asked the waiter about it as i haven’t seen it before and he told me its name and that i can find it at Virgin Megastores.
The movie goes back to 1987 and is called “Beirut: The Last Home Movie” and was directed by Jennifer Fox.
I am not sure what this movie/documentary is about but i read some reviews and all agree that it is very boring and long. I am going to look for it this weekend and see if it is decent or not.
Waiting for your review 🙂
I have this, it’s a documentary about the Bustros family home in Ashrafieh, I think the home is now the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Here’s a nice review
I liked the movie but it is a documentary, so the entertainment value is subjective 🙂
I saw it just a few months ago. It is long and a bit boring but that’s not to say that you can’t get something out of it. Let us know what you think!
Apparently it’s out of stock at Virgin at the moment!
Just saw this post since I was vacationing… I have this dvd… I agree with Sheila on this one… Its not entertainment… it’s more of a “reality tv” sort of documentary of the Bustros family home in Achrafieh during the war. It’s insightful.
