A Love Letter - رسالة غرام


This musical melodrama (adapted from Alphonse Karr's novel Sous les Tilleuls) stars actor-singer Farid Al-Atrash and actress Mariam Fakhreddine. On his daughter's wedding night, singer Wahid remembers the girl's mother and how her family had disapproved of her marriage to him. His hopes for marriage were ended by an affair she had with his friend, but he grew to forgive her and subsequently dedicated his life to his art. The film is a touching meditation on love, forgiveness and the cyclical nature of life itself.

The poster recreates a touching scene from the film of Farid and Mariam reconnecting, both tearful and in a mood that is poignant. The abstract background of strong colors symbolizes the emotional turmoil of the moment. The style is quiet and elegant, with a profound dignity that summarizes the characters in the film and their story.
