Movie Review - Where Do We Go Now? (2011)

25 June 2012 12:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Where Do We Go Now? (French: Et maintenant on va où?), 2011.

Directed by Nadine Labaki.

Starring Claude Baz Moussawbaa, Leyla Hakim and Nadine Labaki.

Synopsis:

When religious tensions rise in a small village populated by both Muslims and Christians, a group of Lebanese women attempt to appease the situation.

Where Do We Go Now? A question most apt in this modern world of ours, in all respects. Nadine Labaki has crafted a quality film that grasps themes relating to both the storyline of the film and themes everyone must come across in their lives. It asks questions that, even though they’ve been asked before, are bought across in a fresh way.

Sometimes the turns the film makes are headlong into a hedgerow of silliness (phrase copyright Matt Smith 2012). At certain points the film is explained to the audience through the medium of musical numbers. And I’m... not exactly sure why. »

Silent Souls (15)

(Aleksei Fedorchenko, 2010, Rus) Igor Sergeev, Yuriy Tsurilo, Yuliya Aug. 78 mins

Even by Russian standards, this lyrical road movie is a strange world of its own. It's a journey back in time, as much as across a remote landscape, with a friend helping his boss to give his deceased wife her last rites, according to their ancient tribal ways. Along the drive, we're steeped in strange folklore involving vodka, rivers, small birds and ornamental pubic hair. Is it for real? Or an elaborate joke told with a very straight face? Does it matter?

The Five Year Engagement (15)

(Nicholas Stoller, 2012, Us) Emily Blunt, Jason Segel, Chris Pratt. 124 mins

The obstacle to true love is built into the title of this romcom, but it's at least smartly handled, as high-flyer Blunt keeps her fiance in perpetual limbo.

Where Do We Go Now? (12A)

(Nadine Labaki, 2011, Fra/Leb/Egy/Ita) Claude Baz Moussawbaa, »
