FEELING GOOD : “WHAT LOLA WANTS”

 

No plans for the week-end ? Want to stick home and relax in your den with a good movie which will make you feel happy ?

Get “ WHAT LOLA WANTS” at your local Blockbuster ;

“Whatever Lola Wants” is a romantic comedy-drama movie, released in 2007, by Paris-based Moroccan Nabil Ayouch about a blond American girl ( lovely in her postman’s outfit ) who travels to Cairo to get the grip back on her Egyptian love after a hell of a misunderstanding,  but ends up pursuing a passion for belly dancing.

Lola (Laura Ramsey) finds Ismahan (Carmen Lebbos), a legendary but disgraced Egyptian dancer, and asks her for lessons.

Lola and her spontaneity, good naturedness conquer the heart of this hurt belly-dancer.

 

 

 Carmen Lebbos is a  talented Lebanese actress playing in the movie along with Americans and Egyptians, all directed by a Moroccan.  Cultural fusion at its best.

The movie is set in Egypt and is a good reminder of Egypt’s particular atmosphere in the midst of today’s chaos.

Yes, all right, it is all very predictable but stir some love, some friendship, wide smiles, lively and energetic music, good principles and you’ll feel pretty good !
