Bride of the Nile - عروس النيل


Rushdy Abaza, one of the most prolific actors of Egyptian cinema's golden age, is a petroleum engineer who is determined to find oil, even if it means disturbing the ancient tombs of the Pharaohs. Lubna Abdelaziz is Hames, a beautiful spirit and “Bride of the Nile” sent to warn him against rousing the spirits from their rest of thousands of years.

This incredibly romantic image shows Rushdy lifting up Lubna, in a wonderfully warm and loving embrace that hints at a happy ending. Styled as an Egyptian bride in the ancient tradition, Lubna's gorgeous pink dress and period jewelry are dramatic, attractive and an appealing look back to a popular historic era. The wholesome romance and bright colors of this film poster are a celebration of life that can brighten any space.
