An amazing portrayal of Youssef Idris' Great short story "did you have to turn on the light, Lilly". It doesn't only display the story on the screen, as it also adds characters like, Samy El Adl, & it ads more dimensions to the the main characters. The opening sequence, & the praising scenes, worth a lot. It wasn't surprising that Marwan Hamed, gets to direct the Epical classic "Yakoubian Bulding". The question is why was the ending changed from the story & the film? in the original story, The Sheikh went to lilly & she refused, the same happened in the film, but only in the Sheikh's Mind, it didn't like actually happen. Anyway I always say that the scriptwriter is free to change anything in the original story. Like in Youssef Hesham's Adaptation From another Youssef Idris Story "Akbar El Kabaer" in his film "The Greaest Of Sins". If you want the story, read it, if you want the film see the film.
I think that Marwan Hamed will be one of the most important directors in Egypt. A Must see for short film lovers, & also for Youssef Idriss. Highly recommended
