The Yacoubian Building
Cairo: a 70-year-old building of once-luxury flats with tenements on the roof. Zika, an aging libertine, feuds with his sister. Pius Haj Azzam takes a second wife, in secret, to satisfy sexual drive within religious bounds. Bothayna, poor and beautiful, supports her family, wanting to do so with dignity intact. Her former fiancé, Taha, the janitor's son, humiliated by the police, turns to fundamentalism. Hatem, a gay editor, seduces and corrupts a young man from the sticks. Two brothers, Copts, one a tailor and one Zika's factotum, connive for property. Allah is on most everyone's lips, and corruption is in their hearts.

(es) wrote: Although the theme of the film unusual, except that the director deal with the topic in the method was less than normal
(ca) wrote: it came as a shock... this was actually an ok flick with fairly low taboo content. an industry standpoint is confronted when yes sex sell if the stigmas are dropped by mainstreem exposure. there is a concerned look as "dont worry luv leave it up to us" as total world domination is completely available via successful industrialization lol but the point is clear all fun and games have limits and this is a cannon of arms in the wrong places of market. so the commin phrase/derogatory slur meat market is even more adressed. that said i saw a pretty bad version so xxl wil def be a better version as far as sequels go thts sayin somthing anyway.
(ru) wrote: sweet and refreshing movie that captures the precious bond between a boy and his pet. One learns that in such a tumultuous and harsh environment, one can find meaning in life and live in harmony when trusting others and acting on the basis of love. (woah, that's deep!) The kid is mindblowing!! The donkey's pretty kick-ass too (lol, pun intended).

(es) wrote: Here synopsis is not accurate, this movie is more about Akash & Maya not about Tanya. A well directed movie but scene by scene copy of DragonFly.

(kr) wrote: A really cute kids movie classic that is catered more towards kids but is somewhat enjoyable for adults too. A lot of humor for both, and I loved it because it was different.
(de) wrote: This film has such unblinking honesty to it that you just have a feeling this type of situation was close to Gary Oldman. He has created a searing slice of life drama about spousal abuse, domestic violence, drug addiction, alcoholism, poverty and the rough life of just living in South London. But it's the scenes showing warmth, humor and even love between the characters that will shock you. Kathy Burke and Ray Winstone are brilliant. The rest of the performances are unbelievably natural.
(ag) wrote: Drama and laugh out loud funny go hand in hand in this typical Allen fare which is familiar in all but setting. The vast array of dizzying characters and the offbeat plot and atmosphere make this a delight from start to finish.
