Caramel

2007

In this seductive 2007 ensemble comedy, director and cowriter Nadine Labaki stars as the Christian proprietor of a Beirut beauty salon who's stuck in a dead-end affair with a married man. Emotional support comes from her staff and clientele, including a woman who suppresses her lesbianism, a Muslim who's concealing her loss of virginity from her fiance, a menopausal divorcee who auditions for TV commercials, and an aging seamstress whose incipient autumn romance is threatened by the demands of her senile older sister. Labaki elicits expressive performances from a cast of amateurs, aided by Khalad Mouzanar's entrancing score and Yves Sehnaoui's lush cinematography. In Lebanese and French with subtitles. PG-13, 93 min.
