Where Do We Go Now?

Where Do We Go Now?

Award-winning 'comic fable' from Nadine Labaki (Caramel) about a group of Lebanese women trying to ease religious tensions between Christians and Muslims in their hometown.

A remote Middle Eastern village, surrounded by landmines and accessible only by a damaged bridge, threatens to lose its sense of isolation as the country's civil strife catches up with them. When that violence incites local incidents between Christians and Muslims, the women band together to defuse tensions. However some solutions (such as importing some distracting, foreign beauties or spiking the men's food with hash) prove more potent than others.

Winner of the People's Choice Award at Toronto International Film Festival 2011.

Balancing sectarian tragedy and earthy humour is never easy, and Labaki crams in too many stereotypes.

The continually shifting tone of the movie keeps you giddily off balance.

This bittersweet celebration of motherhood deftly blends wry satire with broad comedy while never losing sight of the tragedy of its subject matter.

It's machine-tooled to raise smiles, swell hearts, and tickle tear ducts, yet it does so with sufficient cross-cultural cred you don't feel too yanked.

The movie is never quite bold enough to point out the contradiction of Muslims and Christians hating one another, even though they both in theory worship the same god.

Has little to say about human conflict beyond the obvious.

Baffling nonsense but beautiful and profound. We're conflicted.

A movie that goes from romantic comedy to heart-breaking drama and even ventures in musical ... It sounds like an unlikely successful mix but Nadine Labaki pulls it off in "Where Do We Go Now?". I actually laughed out loud and cried watching this ... there I said it !

Kooky I guess you'd call this - but it doesn't make light of the way human beings keep hating on each other and it does deal with this in an ingenious way. Go see!
