WFC Lebanon: سكر بنات

Very sassy. A classic Mediterranean feel good comedy.

I guess I could be very critical of some bits (like the occasional shakycam and generally not very interesting cinematography), but the actors are so good and it’s all so touching and charming. So on charm alone:

Caramel. Nadine Labaki. 2007. Lebanon.
