Egyptian movies at their best
1 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Perhaps this is the best Egyptian movie of all time , and before chahine started to write his own script from where it all went down hill.the acting is superb specially Elmelliguy and Yehia Chahine, they are very believable but all thanks to the original novel.a recommended movie for all.
