El Biffo's rating of the film Yara

3.5* The love story is just a pretext for filming the beautiful Qadisha Valley in Northern Lebanon. Which isn't a bad idea, a travelogue masquerading as a drama. It is kind of strange how an incredibly magnificent place like this has almost no one living in it, and a completely unappealing and geographically uninteresting place like Indianapolis has almost a million residents. Go figure.
