The Lady from Cairo

La dame du Caire

Directed by Moumen Smihi
Morocco, Egypt, 1992


Playing out over thirty years, La dame du Caire is a complex painterly critique of the Egyptian musical and cinema star system while showing the divergent states of possibility or despair faced by men and women within a changing Egyptian society.
