The movie wafts around a hair dressing salon in Beirut and the lives of the women associated with it. One is yearning for love in the wrong place, an other coming to grip with her identity and a few holding on to the past. Its narrative style is brilliant as it transforms the mundane lives of these women into something transcendental. Though it does show that the women in Lebanon have much in common with their species from around the world namely in their irrationality and lack of logic in places where it counts the most. But in spite of that, nothing should be taken away from Nadine Labaki who directs and stars in this feature. A quasi romantic flick that shows you a slice of Lebanese society that covertly continues to be progressive.
