Caramel Trailer

Caramel, in Arabic:سكر بنات or Sukkar banat, is the first feature film by lebanese director Nadine Labaki. The film is set to be released in February 2008 in the USA.

Here below the official trailer of Caramel:

A terribly seductive movie!

The Plot:
"In Beirut, five women meet regularly in a beauty salon, a colorful and sensual microcosm of the city where several generations come into contact, talk and confide in each other. Layale loves Rabih, but Rabih is married. Nisrine is Muslim and her forthcoming marriage poses a problem; she is no longer a virgin. Rima is tormented by her attraction to women and especially to a lovely client with long hair. Jamale is refusing to grow old. Rose has sacrificed her life to take care of her elderly sister. In the salon, their intimate and liberated conversations revolve around men, sex and motherhood, between haircuts and sugar waxing with caramel." (Source: Production)

A nice trivia about this movie:
The title of Caramel refers to an epilation method used in the Middle East that consists of heating sugar, water and lemon juice. With this titleNadine Labaki tries as well to refer to the "idea of sweet and salt, sweet and sour".

I like this atmosphere of beauty salon where people don't stop babbling.
