The Bank - البنك


Syrian superstar singer-actor Fahd Ballan and Lebanese actors Ehsan Sadek, Taroub, and Mayyada headline this Lebanese film directed by Mohamad Salman. Two friends fallen on hard times rob a bank in Beirut and successfully escape with a small fortune. Their newly comfortable lifestyle is threatened when they fall in love with two women who worked at the bank and spend lavishly to win them over.

Lebanese artist Daifallah designed this poster, which intriguingly combines illustrated and photographed elements. Ballan and Sadek appear within a bright cameo illustration above, and Taroub poses seductively on the beach. The film title in red is rendered in a clever style that shows the stolen cash. This is an attractive poster that spotlights the film's blend of romance, gentle comedy, and light drama.
