Storyline

Pomegranate is a beautiful story that unfolds with two male cousins, one who is a director in Los Angeles, the other who is a priest in Beirut. A family matter brings them together after 17 years. The priest is dealing with the fact that some of his loved ones were killed in a bombing and he has come to reunite with his family in America and deliver the bad news. The character of the director has to 'find himself' again through finding the love and value of his culture and family, to win back the heart of the woman he loves through his adventures with his cousin. There are great performances by several character actors (and a few non actors) playing eccentric family members. A ton of personality to these characters that adds a ton to the film. Written by kdk

very sweet
30 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Worth seeing.

Its a bit sloppy in the beginning, but its a lovely story and very moving by the time you reach the end. I was worried for about the first 20 minutes, but eventually the movie seems to find its feet and grows into a very sweet love story. Between people, between cultures, between families, between generations.

I saw it at a festival and I would love to see it again, but I'm not sure where I could. I hope it comes out on DVD soon.

The best performances came from the great character actors (and non actors) who were used in the film. Great faces and personalities that really captured this culture. The scenes at the family gatherings were my favorite. So sweet and moving.
