Reason and Money - العقل والمال


This film marks one of the penultimate appearances of beloved comedic actor Ismail Yassin, and also stars actress Taroob. This is a classic fantasy-comedy fable about two friends: one puts his faith in the supreme power of love to conquer all, while his friend believes money is the key to eternal happiness.

This poster comes to life with wonderfully vivid colors in a bright, primary palette. The contrasting hues behind the words in the title hint at the conflict of these two ideals: can reason and money coexist, or must life be dedicated to one or the other? Yassin's confused look suggests reconciling the two will be an adventure filled with wonder, mysteries, and comic misunderstandings.
