Dubai International Film Festival – Sophie Boutros Movie “Mahbas” (Gala)

With the most talented Sophie Boutros. What an exceptional movie and cast! You made us laugh, you made us cry and most importantly, you beautifully represented our complex reality. Congratulations to you, Nadia Eliewat, Fadi G. Haddad and to all those who worked hard on producing this magnificent artwork.

“20 years past the Lebanese-Syrian war, still Thérèse didn’t get over her brother’s death by a Syrian bomb. Today her only daughter is getting engaged. Only when the suitor and his parents are at her doorstep, she discovers they are Syrian”.

بعد عشرين عاماً على انتهاء الحرب اللبنانية، تيريز لا زالت لم تتخطَ موت أخيها بقنبلة سورية. تنشغل تيريز اليوم بالتحضير لزيارة الخطيب المرتقب لإبنتها الوحيدة الذي سيأتي بصحبة عائلته لقضاء
ليلة في منزلها. يصل الضيوف الذين طال انتظارهم عتبة منزلها، فتكتشف أنهم سوريون!
