A movie that you could watch over and over
8 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

One of the best classic romantic comedy movies for the famous couple, Omar Sharif and Faten Hamama You simply can watch this movie over and over and never get board. very romantic with light comedy.

Between Faten, Omar, Fardous, and Stephan Rousti, you can combine scenes of pictures that you enjoy.

one of the famous scene in this movie when Stephan asks Fadous (the mother) for the dance, then she tells him to go ahead and dance and no one is stopping him. He then tells her that no problem, he will get dressed and tie his waist and dance. (She did't understand that he was inviting her to dance with him).
