May in the Summer


May in the summer is a good story, well acted and well directed.
It is the story of a woman who simply stumbles and undermines a recently announced big decision: to marry the man who is convinced to love.
Due to the return to the family, which always destabilizes, due to the disagreement of her mother, fervent Christian against a Muslim fiancé, due to the general stress, this woman who seemed so determined, undergoes a transformation.
Finally, the tough decision to say no and break off the marriage, gives to her and to the spectator, a sense of liberation and rebirth.

This is a female story, but not sticky. It is about having the courage to say no, to start over, to fall in love, even if it seems too late.

Excellent work of the director Cherien Dabis, who directed and starred a movie that I really enjoyed.
