But these women will go to every measure possible and break every limit imposed on them by society to keep their town together. The acting troupe is very good, very believable. Telling the story of the women of a closely-knit town, where people of both Christian and Muslim faith coexist, trying to keep their town united, the movie debuted at Cannes without winning anything there. The cemetery is full of the bodies of the village’s youth and tended by the weeping women who’s hopes and dreams for the future are prematurely ended by the deaths of their sons. And it is then that the few women of the village start to devise plots to keep the men busy, entertained and get their minds off being violent. As sectarian fighting starts elsewhere in the country, and the men begin to squabble and bring out their hidden weapons, the women try whatever they can — fake religious visions, hash pastries, a bus load of Ukranian strippers — to preserve what seems to be a recent and all too fragile interlude of peace.

Where Do We Go Now? () – Where Do We Go Now? () – User Reviews – IMDb
In this obvious crowd pleaser, director Nadine Labaki who also has a role as one of the Christian women in the hallq2 tries to paint the village as a microcosm of Lebanon in the years after the long, brutal Lebanese civil war.
They achieve an unsteady truce but at least life goes on.
I wish they could direct a lot of hallla2 movies, not about the same issue, but, hopeful, some romance with some drama, humor, and violence would make the best movie ever, to watch!
A series of untoward incidents take place — chicken blood instead of wine at church, farm animals let loose into the mosque, and the tragic death of a young boy — which due to their religious nature weun suspicion against the members of the other community. But as the film closed I was left with a blank face You might want to check my review of it.
Excellent setup, w halla2 la wein directing, excellent acting, Excellent movie And then comes Nadine Labaki’s new movie: Was this review helpful to you?

We woke up early on Sunday morning to watch it at 9: An enterprising Saudi girl signs on for her school’s Koran recitation competition as a way to raise the remaining funds she needs in w halla2 la wein to buy the green bicycle that has captured her interest. I wish one day on this planet, there will be no more “us and them” because we are fellow inhabitants of the Earth and we share both splendor and travail on it.
JR October 9, at 8: Written by The Oddball. Nadine Labky seemingly effortlessly manages too make you live a journeya beautiful story and tackles a very sensitive issue in a simple yet deepall with a funny side added.
W Hala2 La Wein (Where Do We Go Now ?) () – Nadine Labaki | The JR Express
A romantic comedy centered on the daily lives of five Lebanese women living in W halla2 la wein. Single, Married, Divorced March 27, at 9: October 31, at 7: Now that I have, I must say I was quite bemused at the way the whole thing was depicted, that being the way a war between two different religions in Lebanon is being averted by various of the women in the way they treat their men and the way they do little things to keep them from getting out of control.
From the very first sceneyou feel that is going to be a beautiful movie. At last, a Lebanese attempt that makes it worthwhile.

To clans with broken hearts under a burning w halla2 la wein. On the minus side, the humor is perhaps too broad at times. This is the story of a small community barely keeping itself together, surrounded as it is by violent conflicts between opposing religious groups.
