Louise Portal : gorgeous
16 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Very good movie. A little bit slow at the beginning... different... the director shows us a very deceiving side of the Lebanese society but very true.It's enough to have an open mind to appreciate the message. I liked a lot Louise Portal who was able to be in the role of a Lebanese woman and a quebecoise woman... I liked mostly all the emotions it made me live. Very recommended film. Very good movie.
