I second all these positive comments ....this film is refreshingly surprising! Two scenes, especially struck my fancy - a romantic dance with a ladder (and a handsome painter-decorator) and all the village women in a fun loving cooking scene. The story is intentionally set in a nameless timeless place .... which is a charming way to portray the universal qualities of old world cultures.
Really good! Some drama, but mostly it's fun to watch all the different schemes. Great ending too.
Very well done...didn't see the ending coming at all.
Quite cutesy throughout...along the lines of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The women of a village that is half Christian and half Muslim keep the religious-based violence that plagues their country from entering their village...through in-the-background schemes, motherly nagging and on-the-spot interventions when the men start down the pathway of religious violence.
The final intervention in response to a village boy being killed when returning from the city-market breaks the whimsical trend...brilliant, brave and from heart...a solution to stopping violence and religious hatred that only women could dream up and have the individual and collective guts to do.
A great movie ! *****
"Where do we go now? " follows the antics of the town's women to keep their blowhard men from starting a religious war.
A fantastic movie about living with differences that make other places go to war. Funny, entertaining and, most importantly, with a strong multicultural message.
Funny (sometines hysterical) and touching. Reminds me of the Greek play Lysistrata, where the women withhold sex from their men until they stop fighing. Colorful, good music and acting.
I liked the movie. Entertaining way to show the problems between cultures and how people can get along regardless.
This gives a great look into what family life can be like in an Arabic village where Christian and Muslims reside together and what villagers do to try and reduce conflict conducted in the name of religion. This could be a great lead into discussions on how ridiculous human beings can be and use religion as a means to claim rights and superiority.
Really enjoyed this movie. It was touching, funny and serious at the same time. Really ended up caring for the characters and hoping everything would work out well for them somehow. Good and rare insight into this type of situation in this part of the world.
This second film by Lebanese director Nadine Labaki is about conflict between the Christians and Muslims in Lebanon. Again, she also starred in a key role in the film. Unfortunately, it is not as well-executed, and credible, as her first film, Caramel. Watchable but not great. Subtitles.
