Layla, the Shore Girl - ليلى بنت الشاطئ


Mohamed Fawzi plays Mohsen, a humble fisherman who falls in love with his boss's daughter Layla, played by Layla Fawzi. When he's fired for having an affair with Layla, Mohsen meets a troupe of performers and joins them, intrigued by the beauty and talent of a singer named Elham (Fayza Ahmed). It's an intriguing story of complicated romantic entanglements, with lively performances from the cast.

This poster spotlights Mohamed, dressed in period fisherman's garb, and Layla standing at the shore. The contrast of blue sky, green water and golden sand creates a nicely balanced image that summons an impression of cool breezes and simpler times. Fayza looks on from overhead, suggesting her role as an observer of love and romance in the story.
