OK, Enough, Goodbye -- Film Review
ABU DHABI — Produced with the help of Abu Dhabi’s Sanad fund and the participation of the directors’ family and friends, OK, Enough, Goodbye is a mini-budgeted but smart, low-key comedy about an overgrown mama’s boy of 40 suddenly forced to construct a life on his own.
After their prize-winning short Tripoli, Quiet, this first feature by Lebanese Rania Attieh and U.S.-born Daniel Garcia again depicts life in the turtle lane in Tripoli, the provincial capital of north Lebanon. The likable film uses a leisurely pace to mimic the sleepy city’s inertia and the hero’s comfy, co-dependent lifestyle. This real time approach is likely to slow down offshore interest, outside of festivals and Arab language markets.
