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.
