Beautifully shot

This was mesmerising from beginning to end. I'm not just talking about the hunky actors parading shirtless in shorts throughout much of the film. Nor the hints and glimpses of a deeper secret of forbidden friendship or longings that permeate so many scenes. I mean the story itself reflecting so many of the problems faced by present-day Lebanese youth (or Arab youth) in general and how these interact with the mores and concerns of an older generation. This is one of the few films I haven't deleted after watching once and I shall be watching again after a decent interval.
