Arabic movie in Rotterdam
As part of the annual Arab Film Festival, I propose to watch the Lebanese movie “Mahbas”, or engagement ring.
“ Therese, the mayor's wife in a Lebanese village, joyfully prepares for an overnight visit of her daughter's suitor and his parents. She excitedly shares the happy news of the engagement with pictures of her beloved brother who was killed by a Syrian bomb 20 years ago and is still bizarrely present in every corner of her house. Only when the long-awaited guests are at her doorstep, she discovers they are Syrian; this engagement will only happen over Therese's dead body!”
The movie will be English subtitled.
Looking forward to seeing you.
