Mendiants et orgueilleux - Chahatine wa noubala'a

Gohar is fifty years old and teaches history and philosophy at university. One day he decides to leave this place and to live as a beggar, just like his friend, a poet, who owns nothing and wants nothing and as such feels absolutely free. All he needs is a little bit of hash as well as some peace of mind. In a moment when he has neither of that he strangles a prostitute without any real reason. Nour el Din, who is commissioned to investigate the case, is groping in the dark with the solution of the murder. He is fascinated by Gohar, an educated man who doesn't fit with this criminal milieu at all. As Gohar confesses to his deed, Nour el Din can't understand the world any longer. More

Youssef Chahine’s adaptation of Marxist writer Abd al-Rahman al-Sharqawi’s 1953 novel, set in the 1930s, is an epic chronicle of life in a rural Egyptian village. The main plot concerns the unsuccessful attempts of the villagers to retain their access to water. Told that they can only irrigate their land a few days a month, several of the villagers are arrested for overwatering. Although the outside threat originally seems to unite the villagers, divisions resurface, and one of them is bought off by the local bey, representative of the ruling class in general. More
