one of best movies ever made !!!
19 December 2010 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

It's one of best movies of all time , It shows many different human personalities with great effort of one of the best Egyptian director Salah abouseif , he made a real complete community in this film , Ahmed zaki made a great performance as a socialist , gamil rateb as a rich man seeks power , safiah al emary as she works in a national newspaper , salah abouseif created in his community the rising of the power , socialism and revolution. It described the idea of adventure and co-operation between the people of the same community (that seems to be socialism) , how to be the ruler of a community by the ignorance of it's people , how to make them like a slaves !!
