Where Do We Go Now? @ The Flicks 1 + 2
Be prepared to be totally blown away. You’ll love the music, the mood and the message of this movie. Director Nadine Labaki has succeeded in orchestrating a masterpiece of a movie.
Set in a remote village where the church and the mosque stand side by side, the film follows the antics of the town’s Muslim and Christian women, heartsick over sons, husbands and fathers lost to previous flare-ups, in their efforts to keep their blowhard men from starting a religious war.
The women of the town’s unwavering friendship transcends the religious fault lines of their society, and they hatch some extraordinarily inventive plans to distract their men, from faking a miracle to hiring a troop of Ukrainian strippers.
This movie makes us realize that we have more important things in life then to be fighting over religion and to put our differences aside and live happily in our community and to accept each other.
You’ll be greatly touched, happy, sad, and alive after watching this diamond of a movie.
