Storyline

Asfour wants to marry his boss' daughter Aleya, but Aleya's father rejects him because of his lower class and his lack of money. Asfour later meets a mysterious old man who advises him to go to a cave in the mountain, where he will find bliss. The cave contains a magical lamp with a female genie named Kahramana. Asfour commands her to assist him in his desire to win Aleya, but the genie has plans of her own for him. Written by Julie Elliot (Shira) imdb@shira.net

Quotes

Wise old man: Who accepts his lot? Don't believe me? Come with me. See all these? Greed and selfishness and materialism have blinded them. Qeshta cares not for his daughter's joy but for her dowry. Alia cares not who makes her happy, but rich. Asfour is carried along by the current and can't tell what's good. Keep dancing. Keep dancing. No matter how hard you dance, you only get your lot. Clowns in the hand of fate.

Fine Musical
28 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

That was the golden age in Egyptian cinema where the best musicals were produced in the 40's and 50's. Farid and Samia were the Middle Eastern version of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers who entertained audiences over the years and were the perfect couple before their separation; Samia married an American businessman and traveled to the US to amaze people with her first class belly dancing while Farid continued singing and acting in movies with dramatic and sad themes until his death. Afrita Hanem is a masterpiece in Egyptian cinema and it's a shame you'll never find this quality of movies in our present days due to cultural and social changes.
