A Film to remember
25 January 2005 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

Bab el shams , i think it's a charming film about love story between man and a woman , between people and their stolen homeland . let's see the relation between the blind man and his home , how is younes work to make his homeland free and how did he love his wife ,the little girl who come a wife of younes how did she grow up and lost her home and return to it .. the film maker yousry nasr Allah make us feel about the people, their life , how they feel when the lost their home . i think it's very important film not just because it's a good film with a good acting, music , picture, etc.. but because they give us a film to make us remember what some people want us to forget .
