I read the complete synopsis of Caramel and I agree with it's whole contents...Although, it's sweet, sincere and beautiful movie... It wasn't borring watching it. Please continue to provide us with such enjoyable subjects from the Middle East Countries...

Fresh from commercials and musicvids, novice helmer (and star) Nadine Labaki gathers five women around a Beirut beauty salon to address a range of issues facing Lebanese women -- from extramarital affairs to religious dictates. Low on calories and not especially original but always diverting. Full Review

You are likely to remember this charming film, directed by Nadine Labaki, less for its gently comic, mildly melodramatic plot than for its friendly and inviting atmosphere. Full Review

Smarter and more poignant than the average chick flick. Full Review

Caramel is a sweeter and more believable version of "Steel Magnolias," Middle Eastern style. Full Review
James Berardinelli
It's refreshing for a romantic comedy not to follow the formula by rote. I only wish I could be as enthusiastic about the amount of screen time accorded to certain characters who are more tedious than endearing. Full Review
