Critic Reviews for West Beirut
This warm and very smart comedy is set against the backdrop of a war-torn city, like Hope and Glory's London. It's human and never stoops to sanctimony.
Yes. A war zone can be fun for restless teens with hot blood and a passion for mischief.
In this cross-cultural gem, we are touched as the characters struggle to keep their souls alive in the midst of war.
Doueiri deserves credit for the courage of his effort, for his obvious desire to go beyond the fictional boundaries of moviemaking to illustrate the continuing plight of the Lebanese people.
Shares a wealth of perceptive observation that knits together into a moving memoir.
