An insight to the true modern Cairo
25 November 2005 | by ramzooziSee all my reviews

This movie gives a true insight to the modern lifestyle of the aristocratic young adults in Cairo. It is a great step towards better direction, more realistic Arabic movies, as Arabic movies have always stressed on non-realistic modern ways of life in the Cairo now-a-days. The good direction, quality soundtrack, as well as the appreciated acting, and the realistic storyline in this movie have paved the way for young directors to be a bit braver in presenting their ideas to the Egyptian viewers and not rely on the traditional scenarios. I personally really liked the movie and would definitely recommend it to anyone, but you got to keep in mind, that the movie is an Egyptian production, meaning that the style is slightly western, yet very much Arabic.
