    Default Movies with bellydance

    Hi,

    I have been trying to find a copy with English subtitles of the movie "Whatever Lola Wants". Has anybody seen this movie? I"m desperate to watch it. I did try watching it in French by my French sucks and I couldn't follow the plot at all so I'm hanging out for subtitles.

    I'd be interested to hear of any other movies that feature belly dancing.

    Chani

    See if you can find Son of Sinbad - it's made in English, and has a fabulous dance scene by Nejla Ates (Turkish dancer) near the beginning.

    A number of Egyptian movies are now available on DVD with English subtitles. Try Arabic DVD , enter.html , and FineArt Film!, Arabic DVD . Look for Shore of Love, My Father is On a Tree, Say Hello, and Inspector General. Amazon has Afrita Hanem and A Glass and a Cigarette.

    There's an old French movie called Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves that has Samia Gamal in it with several dance scenes - Amazon used to sell it on VHS with English subtitles, not sure if they still have the VHS.

    Right film night round LizaJ's then! I was going to bring popcorn but I think really stuff for the USA will be better so someone bring that. I'll bring Yorkshire tealoaf

    I think there was a post somewhere about that Whatever Lola wants and an eta for it being released in English. It was a while ago, and there have been more that one thread about it, but this was quite a short one...

    (Found it, it's this post http://www.bellydanceforums.net/othe...ola-wants.html. Bellydeluxe may know)

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the semidocumentary-movie "Mondo Cane" feature Morocco doing a belly dance scene? I believe it revealed how she cursed in Spanish if things didn't go right for her.

    Before Sunrise starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy has a scene with a belly dancer it.

    I can remember seeing an australian mini series on ABC (I think it was The Seven Deadly Sins) and one of the episodes featured a dancer in a restaurant, sorry but thats all I can remember.

    There is a movie called Sabah. It has the women belly dancing at home. No costumes but dancing in the kitchen, using a broom for a cane and having fun at a family gathering in the living room (a little hookah smoking too by the matriarch).

    Is this a recent movie?
