A pure egyptian movie
22 December 2003 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

As the famous writer mohammad ghoneimy said this movie is a 100% egyptian movie that don't fake any situations. The acting performances were great especially amr waked and hanan tourk.

Raouf mostafa did the gay charchater and this was the first time you sympathize with such person in an egyptian movie.

I give it 4.5 out of 5.
