Great Movie
16 August 2019 | by akrem_streetcomSee all my reviews

I have always heard lots of criticism about this movie to the point I was advised to save my money when it was released as it is not worth it and so I did! Here I'm after all these years watching this great movie for the first time and learning a very good lesson 'Never trust what people say.' This movie is great and one of a kind in the history of Egyptian Cinema.
