Filmed like a video diary that normally features as extras on the DVD of a documentary film, 'Ça Sera Beau - From Beyrouth with Love', introduces the viewer to the raw streets of Beirut. What one easily notices is how broken the city is and how vulnerable it is to danger (mines, bombing and bullet attacks etc). Through haunting images, Waël Noureddine creates an atmosphere where danger could be lurking at any corner of the street but at the same time it reflects that sadness of what has become of Beirut, a city that was once rich with culture and tradition that has now fallen hostage to crime. Midway through the film, the pacing tends to be a bit slow and repetitive. This isn't, by any means, an educational video on history itself, as some would assume. It's more of a video journal.
