At the time of writing, Heaven Without People is also the 7th of the top 10 movies and shows being watched on Netflix in Lebanon.
The Lebanese movie’s swift domination of Netflix’s most-watched list is not surprising; Heaven Without People is a very successful movie that was nominated for 21 awards, of which it won 7.
Heaven Without People tells the story of Lebanese family members who gather for Easter for the first time in two years.
After some drama unfolds, “simmering tensions are ignited, leading to chaos.”
The family gathers after Josephine, its matriarch who decides to assemble the scattered members, some of whom have underlying tensions toward one another.
The movie stars Samira Sarkis, Jenny Gebara, Farah Shaer, Nadim Abou Samra, and several other talents.
Among the awards that Lucien Bourjeily’s debut feature-length film won are the Special Jury Prize Muhr Feature Award and the Arabian Sights Jury Best Film Award.
