The Badri family has escaped the noise of the capital Beirut and lives secluded in the idyllic mountains. Life is peaceful until the government sets up a garbage dump near the house. The young Lebanese director Mounia Akl looks into the family's everyday life and mirrors the explosions at the port of Beirut and the garbage crisis in the growing conflict.

Die Regisseurin Mounia Akl findet bezaubernde Darsteller für ihre komplexen Figuren und spiegelt in ihrem kammerspielähnlichen Familiendrama den libanesischen Gesellschaftskonflikt, der sich zwischen wütendem Widerstand, lähmender Ohnmacht und resignierter Nostalgie bewegt.

Silvia Posavec

Dans son premier long-métrage, superbement photographié, Mounia Akl se penche sur l’écologisme au Liban à travers le regard d’une famille défiante.
