Caramel

Caramel is the first full feature film by Lebanese director Nadine Labaki. The film, released last year, elaborates on the lives of five Lebanese women and the intersecting themes of their everyday lives.

Despite very limited release, I had watched this film earlier this year when it was released in the UK. A couple of days ago, a friend told me that he had found the film in a group of art movies he got from someone and had never watched it before. I got it and watched it again last night.

I am as ever impressed. The level of production is not only reminiscent of Hollywood's latest blockbusters, but even surpasses the aforementioned. While Hollywood have recently tipped towards hyperscaling to attract attention, Caramel is effortlessly intense by getting the basics of film making right.

The masterful original soundtrack by Khaled Mouzanar (who now Nadine Labaki is married to) is an example of such. The magnificence of blending the Arabic orient and western occidental instrumentation and composition will prove challenging even for the most outrageous cross-genre-bouncers out there. The golden hue of the camera work intensifies the dramatic storyline and the makes the film much more connectible and human. The way all the factors easily fit enriches the very accommodating story. A comical, dramatic and sentimental affair.

All resulting in a distinctly encapsulated experience which I'd easily recommend to any movie lover, wouldn't recommend to someone looking for a cheap popcorn movie.

Watch this movie.

The movie's official website is available somewhere up there, you can buy the DVD here from Amazon, and I'd be happy to upload a track or two off the soundtrack if anyone would be interested in that.

gIt's nice to see you in my reader after I forgot your existence. I wonder what's been keeping you from posting in this site.

I have much free time so I'll check it the movie out of sheer curiosity. I know I won't help but to do that with most skepticism.

It's annoying how you focused on production/direction and almost neglected the storyline. In fact I believe you completely did.

Show up more bitch.
