The Marital Dwelling - بيت الطاعة

$440.00 $550.00

A married couple's happy life slowly devolves into bickering and mutual bitterness that threatens their relationship. They end up in marital court, where the husband prevails and the wife is forced to return to their home. This film that stars Youssef Wahbi, iconic actress Huda Sultan, and Ismail Yassine explores relevant social issues of the period.

The couple, at their happiest, is pictured prominently, with Wahbi in a dapper blue suit and Huda playing a daf (a traditional musical instrument). Yassine is portrayed in a comedic moment from the film. A small illustration beneath the title features the couple walking toward their “happy” home.
