Whatever Lola Wants is a romantic comedy-drama movie, released in 2007, by Paris-based Moroccan Nabil Ayouch about an American girl who travels to Cairo to find a former love but ends up pursuing a passion for belly dancing. Lola (Laura Ramsey) finds Ismahan (Carmen Lebbos), a legendary but disgraced Egyptian dancer, and asks her for lessons.
Whatever Lola Wants is one of those movies where you can guess all the events from its beginning but what made me follow the story with a smile on my face is the nice cast, the Egyptian dance and the music. What I also love about such movies is the linking between cultures and countries. It is always amusing to see how people from different cultures react to some behaviors and beliefs.
It is also refreshing to see a movie about an Arab country that doesnt revolve around war, corruption, conspiracies and the lifestyle of wealthy Arabs. Maybe it would help reduce some stereotypes we suffer from.
