In Beirut, five women meet regularly in a beauty salon, a colorful and sensual microcosm of the city where several generations come into contact, talk and confide in each other. Layale loves Rabih, but Rabih is married. Nisrine is Muslim and her forthcoming marriage poses a problem; she is no longer a virgin. Rima is tormented by her attraction to women and especially to a lovely client with long hair. Jamale is refusing to grow old. Rose has sacrificed her life to take care of her elderly sister. In the salon, their intimate and liberated conversations revolve around men, sex and motherhood, between haircuts and sugar waxing with caramel.

This might be my new favorite film.

Delightful Lebanese comfort viewing.

Intended to feel good but, actually, more than that, this is a chick flic with some sincerely tender moments, insightful observations about a culture in which traditions linger, and painful realizations emerge about the need to surrender to life's limitations, especially for women; it's main fault is that the lessons learned by its characters are a little too easily surmounted.

Not bad
