Bravo *****
16 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

With a very low budget,the young director Maryanne Zehil, from Lebanese origin surely, presents her first feature. An ambiguous title who describes 3 women, 3 generations of different cultures, with many visits between Quebec and Lebanon, mother-daughter confrontations. This is the portrait of 2 cultures that meet, embrace, abandon each other with confrontation and meet again. When we are marked by a mother who abandoned us, we should liberate the tears of the past before being able to function again with serenity in the present and hope to love in the future. When I left the Parisien, I went searching for a specialized boutique to buy some Lebanese coffee.
