By displaying some faces of the feminine life taking place in the Lebanese society (but actually taking place in any other society not only in Lebanon) this movie opens a window on the feminine world and shows us some parts of it and while doing so it sometimes gives a laughter and some other times makes us touch the human pain.
The picture is exquisite and very colorful. Even though it doesn’t show the cliché themes that are used to show how much Lebanon is beautiful it shows some kind of beauty, the beauty of the daily life in the small streets that we dislike and hate sometimes in Beirut, but at the end they make Beirut special and make life in it intimate and warm.
I so much liked the music in this movie, it’s smartly composed, speaks out and conveys the feelings of the events taking place. In some places it was enough to change the instruments (alternation between strings and piano) and to make a small change in the tempo to take us from one mood to a totally different mood while playing the same melody. And the vocalist did a wonderful job in the songs of the movie.
“Caramel” or “سكّر بنات” is a very beautiful movie that combines a deep artistic sense and a good amount of entertainment. I recommend it to those who didn’t see it yet.
