A masterpiece: directed by the great Salah Abu Seif, written by the controversial Ihsan Abdel Quoddous and stars 7 of Egyptian cinema's greatest actors. A melodrama about a 1950s upper class society set in flamboyant cinematic lighting, color and decor.
Salah Abu Seif carefully color-codes his characters and their environment using a typical melodramatic score to punctuate points and to accompany the tones and textures of the story. A color saturated classic full of hidden meanings and symbols.
