Sweet One

Caramel is made by first time film maker, Nadine, who is also the lead actress/ co-writer. Given the premise — beauty parlour run by female friends — this film is a serious stunner. Can perhaps be called the best women movie of the last year. It is a light comedy set in Lebanon. Craft of the film is very European but have very touchy cultural sub plots/ character studies. The neo-noir frames and the light story line gives a nice contrast to the viewing experience. Highly recommended.
