The World (2004) Yasmin Shehab This isn't a tragedy, this is life as it is, with all its beauty and grimness intact. EDIT

A Present from the Past: 20 September (2016) Yasmin Shehab A Present From the Past is less a narrative, and more an attack on that vulnerable spot where relationships build up, each leaving a mark that fades with time but never quite disappears EDIT

It's Only the End of the World (2016) Yasmin Shehab Blood is supposedly thicker than water, but blood doesn't sustain a conversation, and neither blood nor love can fill the chasm that results from something as low-key as a lack of connection. EDIT

Elle (2016) Yasmin Shehab There's not much admirable about her callousness, but for a woman and especially for a mother, her sense of entitlement borders on transgressive. EDIT

Julieta (2016) Yasmin Shehab Julieta strikes at a part of womanhood that's universal in scope, but definitely carries more weight in societies such as ours where gender roles are alive and well. EDIT

Sira: Wenn der Halbmond spricht (SIRA: Songs of the Crescent Moon) (2011) Myriam Ghattas The views discussed in it may not be to everyone's liking, yet the fact remains that Abdel Mohsen and Gysi have shared with audiences an exquisitely soulful story about a unique and dying tradition. EDIT

Aleksandrinke (2011) Myriam Ghattas Pevec's documentary sheds light on a perhaps somewhat forgotten international current that affected an entire region in Slovenia as well as the inhabitants of the Egyptian northern coastal city. EDIT

Videogramme einer Revolution (Videogram of a Revolution) (1992) Myriam Ghattas The documentary certainly illustrates an important phenomenon: any events, be they minor or major in nature, can be reconstructed with photographic and videographic evidence even if the media is not present at hand to capture them. EDIT

Neds (2010) Myriam Ghattas The result of this gamble is a visceral, raw film free of any pretense. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2017
Manual of Love 3 (2011) Myriam Ghattas A romantic comedy that entertains but fails to leave a lasting impression. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2017
Declaration of War (2011) Myriam Ghattas Donzelli and Elkaïm infuse their script with a fair share of humor while dealing with a morbid subject without ever becoming irreverent or exploitative. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2017
Polisse (2011) Myriam Ghattas The ensemble cast is natural, lively and truthful. The balance of personal stories and criminal cases is perfect. EDIT

Made in Dagenham (2010) Myriam Ghattas Made in Dagenham is exuberant, touching, fashionable, invigorating and simply absolutely delightful to watch. EDIT

Submarine (2010) Myriam Ghattas Possibly, the greatest accomplishment of the film is the revelation of an incredible talent in the young Craig Roberts. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2017
Even the Rain (2010) Myriam Ghattas It is a movie that, at the very least, incites the spectator to self-reflect. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2017
Kaf Alqamar (2011) Myriam Ghattas The film reads like a soap opera and the acting pattern adopted perpetrates that impression. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2017
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) Myriam Ghattas Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows offers the kind of action-packed Hollywood spectacle that will keep its audience riveted to the edge of their seats. EDIT

Chronicle (2012) Myriam Ghattas Trank's debut feature treats the audience to a deluge of teen angst, power trips, comradeship and rivalry yielding an insightful look into the unstable machine driving humans' wills and desires. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2017
The Grey (2012) Myriam Ghattas While The Grey exhibits a highly commendable mastery of storytelling and an innate balance of suspense and introspective reflection, the film has failings that can be hard to overlook. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2017
The Rum Diary (2011) Myriam Ghattas Robinson's film is pleasurable on many different levels, not least of which are the ingenious numerous instances of blunt or delirious dialogue exchanges littering the script and delivered in a decidedly taunting matter-of-fact fashion. EDIT
