The Flame (Love and Hate) - اللهب


Shukry Sarhan, one of the most acclaimed actors of the Egyptian cinema, stars as Adel, a young man on his way to marry Salma (played by the elegant Samira Ahmed). His life becomes a roller coaster of adventure when he's mistaken for a notorious criminal and detained by angry villagers, then set free when the real criminal is found. It's only the beginning for Adel and Salma, who remain the focus of attention for the villagers.

This poster features an unusual and distinctive triptych design: dramatic black-on-red title, a concerned-looking Sarhan against a backdrop of his handwritten memoirs, and an even more concerned-looking Ahmed, rendered in a suspenseful crimson monochrome against a black background. The stark, unsettling design mirrors that of Hollywood thriller posters of the era, including those for Alfred Hitchcock films. This is a very unique poster from the golden age of the Egyptian cinema.
