In a way this feels like a Lebanese response to the popularity of certain Hollywood multiple-strand intersecting narrative movies, and as part of that genre it does very well. There are three stories (a boy, a student and a rich woman trying to get pregnant), which seem largely separate until gradually the film ties them together. It does so in a way that makes you realise that the time structure of the narrative is somewhat more tricky than at first it seems, as we come to realise each of the three strands takes place at a different time. For something that could be quite complicated, it's all handled very well, with high production values and some fine acting. I don't know how much exactly it says about life in Beirut, or indeed about life in general, but as a story of three people, all from different backgrounds and dealing with different issues, it has empathy and maintains interest.
