Critics reviews

Like so much great populist melodrama, the film presents an aspirational portrait of bourgeois life, then undercuts it with the corrupting influence of wealth. Despite a happy ending, this film follows the broad outlines of social tragedy — as if Victor Hugo had migrated to Cairo and started to sing.
