A Bandit - قاطع طريق

$625.00 $825.00

Gambling debts force an unlucky man into becoming involved with a drug smuggling gang. His troubles deepen when he causes the murder of a police officer who is also his cousin. Now desperate and on the run, he seizes a cabaret singer's car – love blossoms when they find they have common ground against the gangster at the heart of both of their problems. Rushdy Abaza, Stephan Rosti, and Huda Sultan star in this compelling drama.

Huda Sultan is elegant and charming as the focus of this exquisite film poster, in a dramatic narrow-waisted green dress: her look is one of unusually bold femininity for the period. Abaza is the “bandit” of the title, shown holding a pistol. The title is aligned with the black curve of the road they travel together, and the lush burgundy background provides a beautiful contrast of hues in this eye-catching poster.
