This film takes place during one night in the quiet neighborhood of Heliopolis in Cairo. The films jumps between the stories of six people. While a soldier stands on guard and a hotel receptionists disappears in her imaginary life in Paris, a couple is hunting for an apartment, Ibrahim is researching minorities, and Hany is preparing to migrate to Canada. None of them will achieve what they intended to achieve today. The day will be repeated almost identically tomorrow.Written by
Actually, I saw the film lately.... but I liked so much.. where I liked the moving of the camera...the selecting of the soundtracks of the film.. using Abdel wahab songs... moving in the streets .. the lights and the time of screening.. was awesome... I do not know ... but the movie make you stand to see the next camera move ... the action of the acting.... you may want to listen to the dialog .. but sometimes you feel that there is a pretended action ... especially in dealing with the merchants or the store owners in the korba...something pull you out the scene and then push you again in the forward scene....
Overall I enjoyed the film ... and searched for the director A abdulah .... and I may say .. Like the mohmmad khan film ( Heliopolis flat) as I remember ... depend on the reaction of the actors .. and the camera flowing .... In this film the picture is the icon and the soundtracks are compatible with the moving pictures ... I recommend to watch a film and move quietly between the actors and their situations
