Fantastic suspense
4 February 2007 | by mdajiSee all my reviews

From the first moment I've seen this movie, something pulled me in it. Really it has a non-stopped suspense from the first moment you see the movie till the last moment in it you want to know what is going to happen. Acting, directing, story, really every thing is perfect in this movie; although it's made in 1964 its level is much higher than those Egyptian movies which are made nowdays .

Really you cannot differentiate it from the American movies at that period.

At the end I want to thank every one whose work in that movie and especially Faten Hamama
