The latest film by director Nadine Labaki (Caramel) is an entertaining and unlikely near-musical which turns stereotypes of women in the Middle East upside down and uses humour to explore serious subjects. When the outside world begins to filter into the isolated Lebanese town, first through town-square TV broadcasts and then through “he said, she said” type accusations, the uneasy peace between Muslims and Christians begins to show signs of strain. The women respond by banding together and scheming of ways to prevent their husbands from killing each other in the religious conflict that surrounds the community.
