Bezness is about double confused standards. rofa is a giuy who dreams of going & settling in Europe & he does so by befriending European tourists so he might hook up one day with one & go there to work, but he is somewhat engaged to khomsa whom is treated in the traditional customary middle eastern way, so when fred who works as a photographer starts to show interest in her it evolves into a love triangle, who will win & who will lose, especially when Khomsa finds out what her fiancé does behind her back! This film is quite enjoyable despite the muffled ending, nonetheless its a good film & well acted. Note that khomsa is the same person in silences of the palace, ghalya lacroix, who doesn't seem to act or do much these days, much to my disappointment!
