a unique reflection of the real egyptian society
21 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

The movie is considered a reflection of the real state of the Egyptian society suffering from poverty, ignorance, terriosim not just by force but by words and push.The actors were more than perfect specially sousan badr and the boy who played a friend to ahmed azmy.The movie contains alot of perfect scenes like the one when the boy died in the street and when he lost the pound he gained from selling flowers in the streets. The movie is considered a perfect start for the director and a new hope for the egyptian cinema.
