Storyline

Christians and Muslims lived peacefully together for years in this small Lebanese village, but animosities begin to build among the men as a result of slights and misunderstandings. The women of the village conspire to avert sectarian strife though a series of harebrained plans, none of which succeeds in slowing down the escalating spiral of violence. When tragedy strikes, the women find themselves driven to make a deeply personal sacrifice for the sake of peace. Written by The Oddball

Trivia

in the Lebanese theatrical version of the film, the scene where the goats enter the Holy Mosque, the speaker comes off with a squeeky sound, while in the uncut version of the film, the director intended to make the audience hear the sounds of goats. This was deemed offensive by local authorities and therefore Nadine Labaki was forced to change the audio coming from the speaker. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Amale: [narrating] The story I tell is for all who want to hear. A tale of those who fast, a tale of those who pray, a tale of a lonely town, mines scattered all around. Caught up in a war, split to its very core. To clans with broken hearts under a burning sun. Their hands stained with blood in the name of a cross or a crescent. From this lonely place, which has chosen peace, whose history is spun of barbed wire and guns.

Extraordinary Movie!!
27 September 2011 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

I just can't say enough to give this movie the review it deserves. I loved it so much that I watched it twice in the cinema for 2 consecutive days!! It is a wonderful combination of comedy and drama. It shows how a group of Lebanese women forget their differences and put their efforts together to try to ease religious tensions between Christians and Muslims in their village. They do this by a series of brilliant funny tricks by which they tend to keep the men of the village busy in order not to fight with each other. This movie makes us realize that we have more important things in life then to be fighting over religion and to put our differences aside and live happily in our community and to accept each other. This movie won the fan favorite prize at Toronto International Film Festival. Not to forget, the music and the songs in the movie are very very nice, the melody of one of the songs remained in my head for a week after watching the movie. This movie should not be missed. I'm sure every one will enjoy it and laugh a lot and feel the sorrow in some scenes. I Love it! Love it! Love it!
