Timeless Piece, Will make you Cry & Laugh at the same time

Very few movies can do that to the audience, makes you want to Cry and laugh at the same time, If you speak the Language (Arabic) you are lucky to catch the amazing simplicity yet genius dialogue, if not, even with no subtitles foreign audiences got totally immersed in the plot.

The Blind Sheikh "Hosny" (played by "Mahmoud Abdel Aziz" at his best here) is in total denial throughout the movie of his handicap.

He even ends up riding a motor bike and causing a mess, physical to him and emotional to the audience. A great Timeless movie, Its a Must see.
