In Beirut, five women meet up at a beauty salon, a highly colourful and sensual microcosm. Layale loves Rabih, but he is married man. Nisrine is a Muslim and she has a problem with her coming wedding: she's no longer a virgin. Rima is tormented by her attraction to women. Jamale is refusing to grow old. Rose has sacrificed herself to look after her older sister. At the salon, men, sex and motherhood are the subjects at the heart of their intimate and liberated conversations. The film premiered to great acclaim at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and has easily been the most celebrated and exposed Lebanese films to date - unique for not show casing a war-ravaged Beirut but a warm and inviting local community where people deal with everyday and universal concerns. ★★★★ "Lovingly shaped and deeply felt" - Trevor Johnston, Time Out
