  • All but one of the actresses in Caramel are nonprofessionals -- not unprofessional, just untrained in the craft -- and they are, to a woman, enchanting. So is this Lebanese comedy. show more

  • Labaki, who studied filmmaking in Lebanon and France, has a deft touch and nice instincts. show more

  • Warm-hearted and accessible, it could benefit from good word of mouth in a limited art house run, particularly among audiences who like their rom-coms laced with foreign ingredients. show more
