Storyline

This drama from Egyptian filmmaker Khaled Youssef offers Western audiences an unusual perspective on the Gulf War, as a family is torn apart by conflicting personal and political allegiances. Hoda (Yousra) is a schoolteacher who became a single mother after her husband, a victim of post-traumatic stress disorder, left his family behind. Ten years later, Hoda has raised her two sons, Aly (Mohamed Nagati) and Nagy (Hani Salama), to young adulthood, and has declined to remarry, despite the presence of her supportive boyfriend Mahmoud (Hisham Selim). Nagy has fallen in love with Hayat (Hanan Turk), a student and political activist from a wealthy family, but her parents don't want her to marry a man without a fortune of his own. As Nagy tries to save enough money to convince Hayat's family he's a worthy husband, Aly decides to help by getting a job to make more money for the family; however, work is hard to come by in Egypt, so he moves to Iraq to take a position there. Once Aly has ... Written by Mark Deming

An interesting and unheard perspective
4 May 2001 | by nathan-56See all my reviews

Ever wonder what it was like to be in the middle east during the Gulf War of the early 90s? Sure, many films and TV shows have portrayed what it was like for the UN forces. This film takes you into the melee from the perspective of Egyptians -- who were sharply divided about the war -- and their daily lives, which, as one sees, form the basis of their foundation for understanding/approaching the war. And it really is these "every day" realities that make up the bulk of the film.
