Movie Info

Noubi (Zaki Abdel Wahab is a rich man with a few insurmountable quirks. One is that he is dedicated to giving away as much of his money as possible, preferably to the Communist Party. For that, he spent some time in a mental hospital. Now he is resigned to the fact that he is unlikely to be able to accomplish that goal, so he has hit on another scheme: he will seek out his apparently poor cousin (actually his half-brother, given away at birth) Gamal (Magdi Kamel) in order to give him some money. He tracks him down to a gay movie house, but Gamal and his boyfriend don't want to be found, and they escape. Instead, Noubi finds himself embroiled in a series of ever more unlikely romantic and political adventures, one of which involves a belly dancer (Yousra) who looks exactly like his eccentric, deceased mother. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Mercedes

All Critics (1)

In all of Mercedes' expressions is the feeling of a literate prankster wildly goosing a stuffed-shirt culture.
