Women heartsick over sons, husbands and fathers lost to previous flare-ups unite to distract their men with clever ruses, from faking a miracle to hiring a troop of Ukrainian strippers. -- (C) Sony Pictures Classics

This spirited troupe of women ... makes us citizens of the village, invested in their joys and fears. We grieve with them, under that burning sun, and hope with them for a lasting peace.

"Where Do We Go Now?" is more interesting than satisfying.

With elements of a musical, a melodrama and a multicultural romance, "Where Do We Go Now?" is as hard to define as the crossroads region where it's set.

This is energetic, bursting with sincerity, yet also frustrating and disappointing.

It is, at times, a charming reprieve from the usually dour cinematic explorations of Middle Eastern conflicts.

Labaki never claimed to be Noël Coward, but the facile comedy leads to a dilution of the message she strives so strenuously to make.

Audience Reviews for Where Do We Go Now?

Labaki fails terribly trying to combine in the same film a lighthearted comedy and a serious statement on intolerance in the Middle East, as her story moves with no tact from constant silly jokes to tragedy to corny melodrama and ends in an unbelievably naive last scene that is an offense to the viewer's intelligence.

Odd little movie..but quirky. Part musical at times (random singing sequences--ex. women singing together whilst they bake goodies to drug the men in their village). Seemed a little confused on whether it wanted to be a comedy, drama, or a musical. It even had a blossoming love connection that they started, then seemed to forget about. Like a said...odd movie.

"Where Do We Go Now?" walks a fine line from scene to scene. It's religious subject matter is undeniably touchy, but director Nadine Labaki and co. confront these age old issues with lighthearted farce, sentimentality, hard drama, jarring musical numbers and no little whimsy. Few films could have such element coexist to positive results, but Labaki uses them to strengthen the film. They don't come off as superficial and compliment her vision. This is a great little film that deserves to be seen for a myriad of reasons, most of which is it's impressive thematic balancing act. If you are looking for a stern, serious condemnation of religious indifferences, look elsewhere. "Where Do We Go Now?" is a parable that plays by it's own rules, in it's own world, but screams just as loud.
