5.0 out of 5 stars delicious!, 13 Sep 2008
This review is from: Caramel [DVD] (2007) (DVD)
Im not a huge fan of foreign films, i prefer to watch whats happening on screen rather than reading subtitles below it, but i borrowed this newly released film from a friend who persuaded me i would enjoy it.
Set in Lebanon the film is not what i expected. It was the perfect blend of comedy and sweetness and sad and heartwarming. The story follows a group of women who either work in or around a beauty salon and everyone has their secrets, from the woman who has a crush on one of her customers to an elderly women exeriencing true love for the first time. The women are all modern and in and out of love, like any romantic comedy, except these women are very restricted by their religion and their familys expectations. It made me laugh out loud in moments, and you do really care and feel for the characters. Lebanon looks absolutley gorgeous, exotic and vibrant, and with this film the director, Nadine Labaki, who also plays the lead, layala, shows us why she loves her country so much.
In short, its a funny, sweet, uplifting, heartwarming romantic comedy that just so happens to have subtitles!
