Interesting film about the lack of communication
5 October 2002 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

Beyrouth el lika is a film with a very tiny budget, the kind of films where the director cannot take as many takes as he wants (sometimes even one take only) and where there is not much time for filming. The result is a film that have some actors forgetting their lines and acting badly. But if we forget these flaws, we can appreciate a very original film about a relationship between a muslim man and a christian girl, the title ironicly prepare us for a meeting that'll never happen. The mid section of the film is composed of 2 long monologues were the main characters record their thoughts on a tape to give them to one another, this section is the most interresting part of the film and is very well directed but it is so so overlong and talky that it weaken the film's impact. Overall it's an interresting and original vision of the way people used to live and survive in war time that manage to not fail at any moment in the cliche.
