The complexities of the bonds between mothers and daughters are brought to life by celebrated French diva Fanny Ardant and internationally awarded Lebanese director Nadine Labaki, who gets to show her acting chops here. Labaki plays Sue, a forty-something psychotherapist who returns from Switzerland to her native Egypt to mend bridges with her eccentric, aristocratic and now dying mother Fairouz (Ardant). During her journey, she is haunted by memories and mixed feelings, arguing with Fairouz’s voice in her head as she seeks out the special places of her childhood and once again encounters the smells, sounds, colours and characters of her homeland.
