SYNOPSIS

Lebanon, once the “Switzerland of the Middle East”, where the memory of civil war is still burdened by constant political instability driven mainly by the surrounding countries (Syria, Israel) but also internal, due to ethno-religious groups. La Vie en Rose looks at the Lebanese (Christian) super rich elites who have integrated the country’s political and social conflicts in their daily lives. Sometimes they ignore it, and sometimes they create an atmosphere and mechanisms that enables them to disconnect from this ‘unpleasant’ reality. The conflict has become the best justification for their extrovert and pompous life style: an uncomfortable reality as wars tend to affect negatively most people but the elites are often the least affected, having even the capacity to profit economically from them.
