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.June 28, 2012 | Rating: 3/4

Audience Reviews for Where Do We Go Now?
Apr 22, 2013Odd 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.Cynthia S Super Reviewer
Sep 08, 2012The indecision of the director about the movie be a comedy or a drama makes it almost without meaning. It could had been more successful if the comedy had been taking seriously instead of that drama about the religious intolerance.Júnior D Super Reviewer
Jun 03, 2012In "Where Do We Go Now?" Roukoz(Ali Haidar) and Nassim(Kevin Abboud) travel from an isolated village in Lebabnon on a journey that takes them over a rickety old bridge and past a minefield on errands for the rest of the villagers. And a mine has claimed its most recent victim, Brigitte, a goat, who tastes great spit roasted. One of their customers is Amale(Nadine Labaki, who also directed) whose cafe is being renovated by the handsome Rabih(Julian Farhat). On their most recent excursion, they bring back a satellite dish for nightly viewings. This backfires when violence intensifies in other parts of the country, and the women conspire to unplug it in order to prevent its news from destroying their fragile peace. Desperate, they come up with another plan, with a little help from outsiders... Along with a tip of the hat to Dr. Seuss, "Where Do We Go Now?" has some memorable imagery but is thin on some of the characterizations and admittedly a little uneven, with three musical numbers, if you include the dance of death that opens the movie.(To be honest, I did love the second song.) But that is only to be expected in a place where violence is feared every minute of the day, as this is a compelling allegory of a war torn country, long divided by sectarian bloodshed. In this particular village, Christians and Muslims live and work side by side, but are buried on separate sides of the village cemetery that apparently only contains the bodies of men, leaving it up to the women to come up with a better way.Walter M Super Reviewer
Mar 23, 2012"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.Michael S Super Reviewer
