The Suitable Man - الرجل المناسب


A Lebanese company sends a manager undercover to their Cairo office, to investigate why the branch is losing money. He discovers a public relations employee and the branch manager's daughter are falling in love, and he tries to reveal to her his role without alerting anyone else. This comedy-drama features a who's-who of popular stars from the era, including Nadia Lufti, Kamal El-Shennawi, and iconic Syrian comedy duo Duraid Lahham and Nihad Qalei.

This attractive and boldly colorful poster features Nadia Lufti at center, in warm hues that spotlight her beauty and appeal. El-Shennawi stands next to her, in lavender monochrome. Lahham, in stark black & white, lies down in a comical pose of wonderment, while Qalei simply looks confused within a boxed blue background. The soft pastel colors hint at the lighter tone of this intriguing Syrian-Egyptian co-production.
