There is no movie like "Out Loud" ever made in the Middle East.
Amaya-Akkermans(The Mantle)May 30,2012 "Out Loud" to put it in simple words isn't only challenging the taboos of a society but also telling a beautiful story and at that successfully. Unlike most films that tell linear stories with socially relevant content and somehow evoke the format of the traditional novel there's hardly any social realism in it and the aesthetics of the film is somewhere between poetry and hope.
Director Samer Daboul wanted to plant a seed for the future, and this film is precisely it. It is a question mark and an exclamation mark for all those who want to live in tolerance and equality. This film Romantic, epic, sardonic being humble as it is, is a microcosm of the real Lebanon that lurks underneath the wars and the endless political diatribes.
