Caramel dvd - 2007 film directed by Nadine Labaki. A romantic comedy centered around the lives of five Lebanese women living in Beirut. Six women in Beirut seek love, marriage, and companionship and find duty, friendship, and possibility. Four work at a salon: Nisrine, engaged to Bassam, with a secret she shares with her co-workers; Jamale, a divorced mother of teens, a part-time model, fearing the encroachment of time; Rima, always in pants, attracted to Siham, a client who smiles back; Layale, in love with a married man, willing to drop everything at a honk of his horn. There's also Rose, a middle-aged seamstress, who cares for Lili, old and facing dementia. Rose has a suitor; Layale has an admirer on the police force. Is delight a possibility? Is caramel a sweet or an instrument of pain? Stars Nadine Labaki, Yasmine Elmasri, Joanna Moukarzel, Gisèle Aouad, Siham Haddad Aziza and Adele Karam. Rated PG for thematic elements involving sexuality, language and some smoking. 95 minutes, in French and Arabic (or dubbed entirely into French or into Arabic) with optional French or English subtitles.
