“West Beirut” Movie w/ English Subtitles – فيلم بيروت الغربية

West Beirut (Beyrout Al Gharbiyya — بيروت الغربية) is a 1998 Lebanese drama film written and directed by Ziad Doueiri.

Plot: In April, 1975, civil war breaks out; Beirut is partitioned along a Muslim-Christian line and is divided into East and West Beirut. Tarek is in high school, making Super 8 movies with his friend, Omar. At first the war is a lark: school has closed, the violence is fascinating, getting from West to East is a game. His mother wants to leave; his father refuses. Tarek spends time with May, a Christian, orphaned and living in his building. By accident, Tarek goes to an infamous brothel in the war-torn Olive Quarter, meeting its legendary madam, Oum Walid. He then takes Omar and May there using her bra as a white flag for safe passage. Family tensions rise. As he comes of age, the war moves inexorably from adventure to tragedy.

The movie is presented in 12 parts with English subtitiles.
