“I’m not sure I’ll understand much, but I want to see,” says French icon Catherine Deneuve, who’s driven by Lebanese artist Rabih Mroue to visit the war-ravaged south of his country during the summer of 2006.
Co-directed by Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, this awkward blend of documentary and fiction depicts a society painfully rebuilding itself, where rubble is dumped into the sea and posters of Hezbollah martyrs line the highways.
Yet the images lack historical context, Deneuve seems ill-at-ease throughout and the film overall suffers in comparison with last year’s Lebanon-set Under The Bombs.
