I have seen many Egyptian movie, and this one by far is my favorite. The directing is great, the acting and imagery are amazing.
My favorite part is the part where Yehia visits his future wife, who is an architect, in her office. I really liked how the office was decorated, and how she was playing Edith Piaf music in the background.
Another part I liked is the part where he visits some big drug dealer in Old Cairo. The dealer's house has a unique architecture that dates from more than 100 years ago! It's just amazing..
If you haven't seen the movie,
you've missed a lot!
