In the depths of loneliness and despair, beautiful Aida visits her "tailor," Victoria, a woman who runs a sensual house where erotic fantasies are fulfilled. After satisfying her desires in the arms of one of Victoria's young men, Aida has a haunting nightmare where she envisions herself as a witch who, during a full moon, has the power to destroy her lovers' sensitivity. This disturbing dream sends Aida into a downward spiral of self-destruction. When Aida finally loses her will to live and all hope for salvation, she longs to purify herself and find forgiveness for her sins. Reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and the stylishly erotic films of Radley Metzger, The Lady of the Black Moons emerged from an era of relaxed censorship in Egypt. Written by

One of the most realistic movies in the Egyptian 70's cinema.
This movie features Nahed Yusri in one of her best performance in silver screen, yet belongs to the golden age of the Arabic cinema in general and Egyptian cinema in particular. The movie is considered realistic where you can see the society as it is without any lies or tendency to perfection. Unlike most of the Arabic movies nowadays, the film includes few nudity scenes for Nahed Yusri with full frontal. For whom interested in the nudity scenes in Arabic movies, here's a brief comment: In the beginning of the movie you can see a beautiful girl wearing a see through clothes where her nipples are clearly shown. Nahed Yusri shows it all in this movie while having sex with a stranger, her breast is clearly shown as well as her 70's perfect hairy bush. Even though the plot is not that much interesting, i gave the movie 7 out of 10 for the nude appearance of the beautiful Nahed Yusri. The film is worth watching.
