2002. Lebanon/France. Written and directed by Ghassan Salhab. This fascinating look at contemporary Beirut is seen through the eyes of three disaffected young professionals: a tour guide pining for her lost lover, an urban planner with utopian dreams of rebuilding his battle-scarred city, and a lonely radio journalist reporting on the day's grim events. Salhab captures the chaotic pulse of a city built on both ancient civilizations and the recent ruins of war. In French, Arabic, English; English subtitles. 113 min.
