Rashid Assaf and Ghada El-Shamaa portray lovers who are frustrated by her family's disapproval of their relationship. When her pregnancy ruins her father's hopes to marry her off to a rich businessman, the family suffers an unexpected tragedy that calls into question the obligation of young women to marry according to duty, instead of love. From renowned director Mohamad Shahin, this is one of a series of Syrian films in the '80s that shined a spotlight on evolving attitudes toward social taboos. It has interesting collectible value as a document of a changing culture.
This poster's dense imagery departs from usual design styles for Arab film posters of the era. A collage of photos frames the lovers, posed intimately at center. Modern graphic elements – geometric shapes, line shading, color gradients – are particularly compelling. A summer-inspired color palette of yellow, rose, blue, and turquoise, alongside bold textual elements, amplifies the modern feel.
