Rue Huvelin, a new page in the Lebanese Cinema
29 November 2011 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

Rue Huvelin is about 7 young Lebanese students fighting for their freedom during the Syrian Occupation in Lebanon. We can see the contrast in their everyday life where they never know whether they'll be captured or will be studying on the next day.

Rue Huvelin is not only about this genuine idea to finally talk about a specific period of the recent history of Lebanon. Rue Huvelin is also about 7 different characters: Joe-Daniel the ambitious, spontaneous and fully involved in his cause (the acting of Robert Cremona was really great!). Serge the opportunist but involved in his cause, he is romantically involved with Yasmine. Yasmine who comes from a conservative environment, participates actively in the different movements. Yves, the ambitious journalist whose career will take among his friendship with Joe-Daniel. Wadih the funniest character but the nicest is also involved in the struggle for freedom. Carla and Firas are the only ones that don't seem to be interested in their friends' cause but they're always here to support them. We finally see, Nada (Betty Taoutel) and Abou Leil (Adel Karam) who takes the parents' role. With this mixture and diversity in the characters we see the authenticity and credibility of the history which is more accurate when it comes to acting where you will see natural, spontaneous and true play.

However, I see it necessary to mention the incredible music originally created and composed for the movie itself. With the beautiful and magical theme composed by Christopher Slaski, Rue Huvelin enters a more dramatic dimension that makes it more intense and touching. In addition to that, we have Alexis Rault compositions that adds modern, young and joyful notes to the movie.

Even though you will sometime notice a little weakness in some images, there is no way you will go out of the movie without having felt something different, something where you start asking questions about your thoughts and believes.

Rue Huvelin is a new page in the Cinema Industry in Lebanon, it adds something different, something new, something REAL.

Let's hope for the best...!
