  • Summary: Set in a remote village where the church and the mosque stand side by side, Where Do We Go Now? follows the antics of the town's women to keep their blowhard men from starting a religious war. Women heartsick over sons, husbands and fathers lost to previous flare-ups unite to distract their men with clever ruses, from faking a miracle to hiring a troop of Ukrainian strippers.

    What the film lacks in specificity and interest in taking sides, it makes up for in style, authentic emotion, and terrific performances.

    With elements of a musical, a melodrama and a multicultural romance, Where Do We Go Now? is as hard to define as the crossroads region where it's set. But even without a clear signal, it sometimes seems miraculous.

    Although the film's why-can't-we-all-get-along story line and even some of its quirk-laden pit stops feel familiar, the very texture of what we're seeing seems to change from one moment to the next, resulting in an occasionally breathtaking uncertainty.

    It's a hodgepodge of subplots and wildly disparate tones that even Federico Fellini (to whose "Amarcord" Labaki also owes a debt) might have had trouble controlling.

    The film's blend of pathos, broad comedy and the occasional musical number is a little lumpy. But with sectarian violence continuing to scar the globe, its light tone provides a refreshing response.

    It's a "what if" story that's hopeful but doesn't ring true.

    By the time the film takes a glib turn into role-switching farce - as Muslims become Christians and Christians become Muslims - the overall toothlessness of the satire becomes damningly apparent.

    In the beginning it seems you are watching an adaptation Romeo and Juliet. Having a plot that focuses on a main issue,

    The plot is really good and interesting it focuses on serious problems, the acting is truthful and inspiring, the scenes are chilling and great, but after a second watch, I decided it has some few flaws that makes a minus to it's score, such as some boring scenes and an inconvenienced scenes, but overall it is a great watch and a funny one too!
