One of Best Halim Classic Movies
24 May 2003 | by mk007See all my reviews

Two thumps WAY UP for this one !!,, As Abdel Halim does it again in being both a wonderful actor plus a great singer . this movie is a true classic, it was made in 1957 (6th one for Halim) ,but it will astonish you for it is NEVER outdated and it's story is so fresh and beautifully told in a simple and genuine style, no wonder why Barakat is considered one of the great directors Egyptian cinema ever witnessed. Beside, you have here lovely songs, exciting set designs, brilliant cinematography,, I thank people who made the DVD release of this classic possible (in UK,region 2),and appreciate the art work done on the DVD cover,Menu, and the bonus materials. PLEEEASE consider releasing DVDs for the rest of Halim films !
