  2. esen özen's rating of the film Caramel

    'Ah şu kadınlık halleri' dedirten, sıcak anlatımıyla izlerken keyif veren, rahat izlenen bir film, çok derinleşmeden kadına dair farklı durumlar ve portreler çiziyor.

  3. Gülis Zengin's rating of the film Caramel

    Very warm and feminine. It is a beautiful piece from daily life of Beirut. It shows some social aspects of what it is like to be a woman in Middle East, in terms of relationships, wedding, virginity together with friendship and solidarity. I love how Nadine used colors. It is very visual and vivid. Also very nice soundtrack. It makes me want to visit Beirut.

  5. paul oram's rating of the film Caramel

    This is one of those films you just enjoy watching ... but also great to see a work by a female director ... even better by a female director working in the Middle East. More of the same MUBI please!!

  6. Erika Jane's rating of the film Caramel

    While the characters and storylines in this film are streaked with cliche, I very much enjoyed the insight into a complex culture through the eyes of women. Beautifully shot too.

  7. dmol's rating of the film Caramel

    Even though its characters are not really radical, it makes you warm up to the troubles of everyday life.

  10. Doris Chan's rating of the film Caramel

  11. Alison Wroblewski's rating of the film Caramel

    I loved watching this film. The subtly of the characters didn't hit anything on the nose. It allows the audience to feel for these people without being told how to feel. Can't wait to see more from Nadine Labaki.

  12. raggiodisole's rating of the film Caramel

    A lovely watch, honest and pure of heart

  13. Squashua's rating of the film Caramel

    An airy, fluttering mosaic of the lives of Islamic women in Beirut. Whilst lovingly shot with deft touch and charm, the perils of having five central storylines within a 95 minute time-frame is that not everything, or everyone, ends up with enough screen time to really delve into their desires, fears or psyches. There were threads that drew me in more so that others, but finished before they even properly began.

  15. Inderjit Sanghera's rating of the film Caramel

    The phrase "it’s a man's world" certainly applies to the Beirut in which 'Caramel' is set, yet Labaki is able to reclaim the world for the women in the film by showing the small, but significant, victories, hopes and dreams of women who sometimes flounder under the sea of patriarchy, but always resurface to reclaim the love, dignity and friendship which should be their right.

  16. Peter Taylor's rating of the film Caramel

    Beautiful film; refreshing view of muslim women, community and loving relations.

  17. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Caramel

    Such a beautiful film. So sensitively shot. Stunning and moving performances from the cast.

  18. Penelope q's rating of the film Caramel

    Sensual, taste of honey and time almost lost.

  19. GreenROCK's rating of the film Caramel

    A passage of life in Beirut. The film does not break any ground but it is always pleasure to watch Nadine's work.

    La féminité dans tout ses sens

  24. .Ana.'s rating of the film Caramel

    This reminded me of Almodovar deep and yet light and funny female dramas. The feminine atmosphere, the characters' tenderness, strength and touching friendship is endearing.
