As a sort-of antidote to today’s action-heavy news, including Taken and Van Damme, here we bring you an item about an award-winning Lebanese musical comedy.

Where Do We Go Now?, directed by Nadine Labaki (who became famous for Caramel) won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival in 2011, the Audience Award at San Sebastian 2011, and was nominated for the Un Certain Regard award in Cannes in 2011, and after a trip around the world’s cinemas it’s finally getting a DVD and Blu-Ray release.

As Sony’s press release puts it,  Where Do We Go Now? is “set in a remote village where the church and the mosque stand side by side, Where Do We Go Now? follows the antics of the town’s women to keep their blowhard men from starting a religious war.  Women heartsick over sons, husbands and fathers lost to previous flare-ups unite to distract their men with clever ruses, from faking a miracle to hiring a troop of Ukranian strippers.”

As we know our readers are highly intelligent fans of quality cinema, we have decided to give away a copy. All you have to do is follow us on facebook, and we will draw a lucky winner on Monday. If you don’t win, you can always buy it.A still from Nadine Labaki's Where Do We Go Now?
