Storyline

Egypt is a film which is almost silent. A film about deaf mutes, or rather about their sign language, a language which, like the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, links the symbolic terminology of words with the mimetic and analogous representations of graphic gestures. Sober black and white scenes show how "shark", "widow", "Marilyn Monroe", a James bond sequence, a Viennese song or the account of a treasure hunt undertaken by two holiday makers in Egypt look in the sign language. It is a very modest indication, an introduction to an unfamiliar way of experiencing the world, where one sees the sounds without hearing them.
