Not worth the time
21 April 2020 | by abul_dahabSee all my reviews

If you are not a fan of Youssef Chahine or Dalida, it is really not worth the time. I only saw this movie a couple of times because of Dalida and the second time I watched it only because I had nothing else to do.

In general several actors who really have poor acting skills including Mohsen Mohie El Din who plays Okka, and Dalida who speaks Arabic with what seems to be a strong European accent and playing a native Egyptian woman from rural Egypt-not convincing at all.

There are many shots were I barely understood what the actors were saying or what was going on because the script or their performance was so poor.

The few actors who did a good job only had small roles at the beginning of the movie and we didn't see them again and these include Shweikar, Salah El Saadani, and Sanaa Younes.

The rest seems like a mediocre, and it seems like Youssef Chahine desperately wanted to make a movie with Dalida.
