Caramel

This laidback romantic comedy peers into the lives of five Lebanese women living in Beirut. As in so many other films of this type (Beauty Shop, Beauty Academy of Kabul, Venus Beauty Institute), it's a beauty parlor that provides the excuse for all and sundry to interact, socially speaking. The slice-of-life humor feels mighty familiar, making this a rather universal foreign film. In Arabic and French with English subtitles. 95 minutes PG.
