Compare this movie with something done during Nasser's era...
Its amazing how much worst modern production is compared to a late 50s style Nasserite Movie, at least those of the old had a point. This movie seems to be only saying "Look at Nasser, he was perfect in every way AND he thumped America." The propaganda gets especially thick when in the middle of the greatest crisis of his life Nasser has time to meet with an old woman and receives from her the cloak of her grandfather, who died digging the canal.
The only interesting part of this whole movie is to ask what kind of state was Egypt in 10 years ago (and perhaps today) for this kind of stuff to be popular.
