According to this article, Tannoura Maxi has joined the list of banned movies from Lebanese cinemas after the Catholic Information Center requested the General Security to pull the movie from theaters.
I heard so much about the movie being lame and disrespecting to Christianity, but then again didn’t Nadine Labaki show goats inside a mosque in her latest movie “W Halla’ Lawein“? Why can’t the General Security in Lebanon set a standard once and for all and apply it to all movies? And how effective is the ban anyway when you know beforehand that the movie is going to hit DVD stores whether you like it or not?
Anyway, I just feel sorry for Joe Bou Eid because it was pretty obvious that he was spending lot of money on promoting his movie.
