I Love this movie!!!!!
26 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

I have just watched Tannoura Maxi, All I have to say is Wow! Coming from a MIddle Eastern background myself I have deeply been touched by this movie. The storyline, is realistic as can be, I felt like I was living every moment. From beginning to end I was captured, the scenery was excellent,I loved the vivid sets that hold true to Lebanon's beauty, the characters, the sublime humor and of course who can forget the unforgettable Love story in between the two main characters!

This movie holds true to its roots and storyline, it is a must watch for anyone who is from the middle east or anywhere in the world! If you are interested in viewing a truly organic love story, this is the movie for you!

Love!
