August 13, 2011
A scathing update of the Thousand And One Nights classic of a queen's bid to stay alive through unique female survival instincts linked to the gift of gab. And a film that was surely a political prophesy, of the historic Tahrir Square uprisings to come.
August 12, 2011
A clarion call for the Middle East to emerge from the Middle Ages!
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

Lively, swift, vibrantly colorful and for the most part wonderfully acted, the film is slyly aware of the daytime talk show as a vehicle for women's concerns.

"Scheherazade, Tell Me a Story" is a powerful indictment of misogyny that overturns stereotypes about Egypt through the dramatic stories women recount on a television show.
April 13, 2011
Read in terms of a pure melodrama the movie is wrenching.

April 13, 2011
Together with scribe Waheed Hamed, helmer Yousry Nasrallah presents women's sexuality as an expression of self-determination, making clear the parallels with an ever-degenerating political system.
April 13, 2011
An urgent political statement that's also a funny, sexy entertainment.
August 9, 2011
Nasrallah's artistry is ultimately incapable of matching his narrative's social significance.
