Synopsis

As the specter of sectarian conflict looms over a village in the Lebanese countryside, women of both Christian and Muslim faiths—Amale (Labaki), Takla (Claude Baz Moussawbaa), Afaf (Layla Hakim), Yvonne (Yvonne Maalouf) and Saydeh (Antoinette Noufaily)—are determined to protect their families from further violence and grief.

To distract the men from succumbing to antagonism, they hatch schemes with zeal, beguiling the men with a cast of Ukrainian casino showgirls and serving hash cookies at a dance party. From one plot to the next, these women defy conventions and taboos—until a young man's accidental death from crossfire outside their village calls for a more radical and decisive tactic.

In Arabic and Russian.

  • 5 stars "excellent"
  • 2 stars "interesting plot but i'm not a fan of subtitles."
  • 4 stars "this director has quite a flair for engaging intelligent films. politics and religion lurk underneath this humourous look at life in a lebanese village with both christians and muslims getting along fine, as long as no outside news reaches them. the village's women are the saving grace here, preventing their men from engaging in war. films don't have to be heavy-handed to get the message across--this one does it with style and humour."
