shallow
26 November 2013 | by batootazSee all my reviews

Weak movie and shallow characters, the idea is very good to show only 3 days of the main character life and how it affected his whole life, they succeed to show the main themes of Omar Elsherif personality but it was not implemented in an impressive way. the actors except Omar Elsherif are so shallow and you can't read any of the characters! Also the music was not impressive while they could add some nostalgia songs or rhythm to give some warmness to the movie. I give it 3 stars for two things, first is the last scene in the movie where Omar Elsherif is eating Biscuits alone (excellent & expressive loneliness scene) and second the movie filming. I don't regret seeing it but it could be better.
