This charming film, directed by Mohamed Khan, is a reversal of the moving-to-the-big-city story common in Egyptian cinema at the time. Atiya (played by Yehia El-Fakharani) departs Cairo for a small town, where he tries to sell some inherited land. His host at the village is Kamal (screen superstar Farid Shawky), who helps Atiya adjust to the slower rhythms of the countryside. Soon, Atiya comes to realize that he's been profoundly unhappy in the city and coming to the village is a blessing in disguise.
This poster is an interesting collage of scenes from the film, including the host's daughter with a cow in a pastoral scene, El-Fakharani and Shawky standing together, and the host's daughter again, this time riding a donkey. The note over the framed picture reads, “The characters may be from imagination, but trust that the places are from reality.” The images are sharp and really pop against the bright orange background – this poster is wonderful as a décor element or a piece of valuable cinema memorabilia.
