Love and romance in a sharia setting.

A charmingly frothy and funny romantic comedy (or perhaps it should be titled ‘Beirut, Actually’ as ScreenDaily’s reviewer commented) that follows the traditions of the romantic comedy genre to great effect as it charts how three couples tackle romance within Islamic strictures. From a very funny sex education lesson (apparently ‘worms’ make babies) through to a wife tired by her husband’s nightly demands (who seeks to get him another wife to ease the sexual workload), it’s a funny and heart-warming film.
