Good presentation but dragging at the end with too many issues in one go.
Explores the hidden side of life in Egyptian society, in an effort to address one of the most painful issues affecting young women. The first half of the film flows with enough charm and much ease, with the fast moving story line but becomes heavy in the later half, with too many complicated distractions and a sudden and abrupt ending without a clue. The subtitles are painful to read as they get submerged into the white background leaving the viewer to guess most of the dialogues. Overall it is a good presentation but dragging at the end with too many issues in one go and a disappointing finish.
