Last time a Lebanese movie caused controversy and got banned in Lebanese theaters, it turned out to be a lousy one.

Tannoura Maxi is not yet banned despite several calls to do so but apparently does not deserve all that attention because it’s not that good according to what few friends have told me while others portrayed it as being wonderful. Added to that, despite scoring 7 over 10 on IMDb (by only 49 users), the reviews are overwhelmingly bad.

Despite all that, I plan to watch it out of support for Lebanese Director Joe Bou Eid, but it would be nice to hear some reviews or comments from those who already watched it.
