The Fourth movie Abdel Halim made is a truly masterpiece !,,
it was made in 1955 as a result of a powerful collaboration of Singer/Producer Mohammad Abdel Wahab and Director Barakat. The story is about Abdel Halim falls in love with the beautiful Iman but problems arise when he takes the blame for an accident he did not commit.
This movie is released as a DVD in UK, and it is a must buy for anyone who is into Abdel Halim or interested in collecting Landmarks of Egyptian Cinema Classics,,All of the songs here are from the Best Halim songs ,,and who can resist the classic scene where Halim holding a Guitar in a boat in the Nile under the balcony of his sweetheart mansion singing the timeless ballad "Ana Lak Ala tool" ! The movie is A timeless musical classic,,and the DVD is very well done with a crisp picture and clear sound,,Me and my wife highly enjoyed it and would love to watch it again & again ..
