Excellent /best new generation movie!
1 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was so happy to watch a colored movie as good as the black and white oldies...I liked it because I like movies with simple, real stories...This type of movies require more work than complicated scripts and that's what the director and actors manage to achieve: a beautiful, natural performance delivered by talented artists. It is so good to see that authentic Arabs/Egyptian cinema is not over, the young generation have picked up successfully. I was really surprised though that the movie did not get any festival prize. For me it is the best movie that has been made with new generation actors. Congratulations and thanks to everybody for these beautiful 90 minutes.
