Now that I have your attention, I present to you My Last Valentine in Beirut. It’s the first full-feature movie in Arabic to be filmed in 3D and is expected to be released before the end of the year.
The trailer has been generating loads of controversy. Some vehemently for, some sworn against the very liberal subject matter being handled. I for one am all for. We Lebanese are known for our liberal values (most of us at least) which are not hindered by backwards limitations of religion and tribal societies.
The producers insist that it is far from a porn movie and that the story is indeed well-written and promise a movie that will impress and please. This comes at the heels of “Halla2 Lawein” though, with massive popular and critical acclaim as well as a hefty profit. What do you think? Will you watch this movie? Why or why not?
