  1. oooooooooooooooooooooh! revewing yours posts I bumped into this one, and realized from your words that the film you’re talking about can only be the one in Spain was called “Caramel” (always giving silly names to foreign movies!!) which is the best movie I’ve seen in the last 6 months!!! Lovely, real good actresses, real good true stories!! I loved every minute of it! Thank you for bringing it back to me.


  2. Seems we share the same taste in movies :)) While many of my friends disliked the movie, I just went around telling everyone how great it was. The movie is a leap in Lebanese film industry. Labky is a genuis not only in acting but also in directing. I did enjoy every moment of it… the laughs and the tears. Beautiful!
