The Madness of Love - جنون الحب

$450.00 $575.00

The Madness of Love is adapted from a novel by Austrian author Stefan Zweig. Famed actress Naglaa Fathi plays Mona, a wife who feels neglected by her husband. She meets a handsome pilot and intends to stray from her marriage, until her son intervenes and schemes to reconnect his parents. This is a wonderful film that successfully blends drama, romance and tenderness.

The vivid pink and purple background of this poster creates a striking, flame-like effect and brings forward the yearning faces of the characters. The gorgeous contrast of Naglaa's dramatic red hair, her elegant green earrings and outfit, and the blue of the gentlemen's suits combine to create a gloriously saturated image that mimics the emotional intensity of the story. The poster includes the title in French, rare for films of this period.
