Whatever Lola Wants Movie Reviews

Charming – a real gem

Watched this on DVD recently and found a delightful and lovely story. An impulsive struggling dancer from NYC goes to Cairo to chase after a boyfriend and ends up learning belly dancing.

Laura Ramsey is pretty and winning. It’s a feel good story and provides subtle insights into the cultural and moral differences found in Egyptian society. It’s not preachy but quite touching in the way it shows the attitudes of men towards women, divorce etc. It’s not a tourist view of Egypt but an insightful looks into the society there. The human relationships are in the forefront in the movie.

The actress who plays the former belly dancer star Ismahan is quite lovely.

Definitely worth a watch.

Dirty Dancing in Egypt

It was an average dance film, complete with romance issues, challenges that must be overcome and applauding happy end, but I couldn’t help feel that somewhere in all that clueless blonde smiling permanent intrusion in other people’s affairs there was something offensive. I don’t know how Egyptians are, but I doubt that they are closeted Americans waiting to get out and express themselves to the detriment of all around.

The plot is that an aspiring New York dancer is pushed by circumstances to come to Egypt. She becomes the apprentice of a very good belly dancer and reaches tarab before the end of the movie.

Bottom line: there are some interesting items of fact about the Arab culture, especially when involving women, but the point of view is so extremely American that it felt fake. The dancer was cute, but she didn’t strike me as very good, nor was she a good actress. While the film could inspire some people that are passionate about dancing, it has very few other good parts.

Such a delightful moment with long lasting images and music

Thank you Mr Nabil for such a delicious moment: you have offered us a movie I will agree fully to re-pay the entry when leaving the theater. This is not only a very good film on Dancing,and thanks again for the wonderful teaching, it is a movie about changing, taking risks of failure to learn something new and letting others change your life: I am talking of course about Ismahan mainly, a deep character with excellent interpretation by a woman I had never seen in films… It is also a movie on tolerance, on linking between cultures and countries. The art of dancing is a powerful tool for this purpose,as arts in general have been showing it in many movies and for a very long time (Les uns et les autres, by Claude Lelouch was one of them)I have kept the images within me for the last 3 days, with a smile in my mind. It is a shame that your movie can be seen only in so few theaters in Paris. I am sure people will enjoy seeing it on TV someday, and that your work will find its real reward then. Thank you again.
