Definitely worth the watch
9 July 2005 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

Definitely one of the FEW good movies that were released lately..

On the contrary..of one of the above comments the so called sexual scenes... & i don't think it should be rated above 18 anyway.. there was no sexual content.. maybe mature content.. & there's a difference..

  • so there was no explicit scenes as mentioned in one of the comments


above.

the movie tried & definitely for some did solve lots of common problems in the society... & that means that the movie has passed. it sure gave new insights to the cinema , especially these days.. while surrounded by useless romantic comedies or just plain pure comedies which i am fine with.. but that movie was a light in the dark... if few more movies like that one were released.. i'd have better expectation about the Egyptian cinema's future. The script : Excellent The story : Very Good story acting : not all the actors were great but most of them were. let me tell you, the actresses were brilliant all of them..

Hope more of these movies are released.. the kind of movies that face problems & solve them.
