Mahfouz and Chahine
4 August 2008 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

What a combination between two Egyptian masters Naguib Mahfouz and Youssef Chahine.

This movie talks about a writer and his twin.successful writer with ordinary life,beautiful wife and the other is sailor who live in an opposite manner.the writer became suspicious about a relation between his brother and his wife, then the story goes.

About the story as usual Mahfouz on top with Chahine.direction is also very good ,it's the first movie of Chahine to win an international price and i think it deserve more.

Acting,Ezzat el Alaili i saw him like never before.THIS MOVIE IS REMARKABLE.
