Where Do We Go Now?

type
  • Movie

Nadine Labaki’s strange drama is set in a remote Lebanese mountain village, where the Christians and Muslims share an existence so fractious it would be stretching things to call them a community. The story, while structured as a tragedy, masquerades in wisps of farce, as the women devise schemes — fake miracles, pastry laced with hash — to keep their men from entering into a religious war. But the movie gets mired in these deceptive mechanics. It shows no curiosity about the hatred, so the characters seem less than whole. C+
