Caramel - Nadine Labaki

In this last weekend I saw Caramel by director/actress Nadine Labaki. This film was premiered on Cannes Film Festival, all this story is in Beirut City and about five beautiful woman's working in a beauty salon. I was enjoying Nadine's work who represents Layale, a woman who is not following all Islam laws as the anothers coworkers in the Si Belle salon.

The title Caramel refers to an epilation method. And Nadine was looking to present the reality by who are living in Beirut.

Basically Islamic law provides for differences between women's and men's roles, rights, and obligations. Majority Muslim countries give women varying degrees of rights with regards to marriage, divorce, civil rights, legal status, dress code.

This movie is not explicit like persepolis but you can find the same focusing context.
