Storyline

Karim and Hebba are a young married and loving couple. Both have great careers. Karim is just about to be appointed as editor-in-chief of the greatest governmental newspaper. Hebba is the hostess of much appreciated TV programs about female victims, e.g. daughters who are buried alive because of improper behaviour, people drowning when attempting illegal immigration to Europe. Karim is told that he will only be appointed if his wife avoids political topics. He does persuade her to make programs on ordinary people instead. But her "non-political" programs will become even more repugnant to the authorities. Written by Max Scharnberg, Stockholm, Sweden

A remarkable movie
15 September 2009 | by harjotaroraSee all my reviews

Had the opportunity to see this movie at TIFF and it was simply remarkable! The stories of all characters were based on real life incidents. The actors were really magnificent in translating the miserable treatment the characters went through in their life. The stories depicted in the film and the overall message suggests that some women could be living in difficult situations in Egypt, and it is extremely disturbing. The stories are of real people living in Egypt and the movie has been playing in Egypt since June. By the nature of the film, it is a controversial one but directed extremely well. Try to see this one - an excellent movie!
