I promise I’m not going to spoil the movie for you so you could enjoy watching it like I did. Yes, I enjoyed the movie. Nadine Labaki got me once again. I only watched Caramel (her previous movie) last year. Back at 2007 I wasn’t much of a movies person and especially Lebanese and Arabic production. But after watching the movie, I fell in love it that I memorized it and always set the soundtrack on repeat.
