HIDDEN Egyptian GEM.
25 July 2015 | by pixou-garouSee all my reviews

I never, really never write reviews on IMDb, but this is a hidden foreign gem. An Egyptian ground breaking series, Kamla Abu Zekry gave us one of the brilliant genius TV series about women's jail.

Nelly Kareem gave the performance of her life in this TV show, episode 13 was an absolute wonder. she should be an international Emmy nominee or something for her iconic/genius/gut wrenching role, her gesture and eyes were enough to deliver messages hundred of words couldn't describe.

The musical score add to the dramatic effect of the show, and with a wonderful supporting cast (Dorra, Ruby, Salwa Khattab, Ahmed Dawood, reham Haggag) this is a classic.

I should also point out that it's an all female ensemble cast, for a middle eastern country to give us such a powerful feminist show, is incredible.

10/10, Arabic,Jew,martian you should watch this.
