At the beginning of the final confrontation the villain fires three shots from his rifle in very quick succession. He is using a double-barreled hunting rifle, so he would have had to reload in the meantime which is simply impossible. See more »
I have watched this movie maybe 20 times till now ,and every time i got out with the feeling that this movie is great , it gives you a great picture about Egypt before 1952 , The land owner that control the farmers (Basha) and treat them like salves , the killing circle (Al-Tar) that is well known in upper Egypt , and the love story that will never change with time , and the evil and greedy people that never get enough , it is all in this movies.
The uncountable number of stars with a very talented director gave us this state of art movie
My rate is 10/10 Watch it and then watch it again
