Sorry Mom – A Lebanese thriller

A Lebanese thriller is soon coming to a theater near you!

The feature tells the story of a severely traumatized woman, after her husband was killed and her son kidnapped. 4 years has passed and her son Fadi is still lost.

Revenge has its own bitter taste and can easily turn into a vicious circle…

“Sorry Mom” is the first installment of a series of thrillers that are expected to be released in the near future.

I usually like to go watch Lebanese movies but several ones ended up as a big disappointment like “Falafel”. Let’s see how good will this one be with all the killing, sex, kidnapping, and betrayal it promises.

Sorry Mom will be released on June 9th.

    Well at least it’s not about the war. Hopefully it won’t be too overdramatic, like most Lebanese movies…

    I hope the music in the movie isn’t the same they use in the trailer.. that just screams “bad production”. But yeah hopefully it won’t be an attempt to make a hollywood-type movie with a Lebanese budget..

    Ohh this trailer made me laugh so much! It’s supposed to be a comedy right? Right? Oh it’s not? …uhm…awkward!

    And Nadine Njeim doesn’t seem like the “mom” type! Hehe anyways thanks for posting this Rami!

    Why is the Lebanese society mimicking the Western way too much lately? It has become too obvious that we’re taking the easy way out instead of putting our unique style into play.

    It makes me sick.

    Well, when I first saw the trailer + the soundtrack clip, I said “Yeah!! finally here is a good Lebanese movie, I’m definitely gonna watch it” but unfortunately the movie was a real disappointment!! actually it’s a SHAME!!! It’s obvious that it’s done with a low budget, the shooting, the lighting, the voices, the ACTING!! Seriously why is Nancy Afiouny insisting to be an actress?! she really sucks in this domain!! The main story isn’t bad at all but the ending?!!! I really didn’t get what happened at the end! But I really LOVED the soundtrack, Ivone has an amazing voice.
    Finally, I wish we see some good lebanese work in the future like AJIAL series…
