The Football Player - لاعب الكرة


Iconic Syrian comedy duo Duraid Lahham and Nihad Qalei star, alongside actor Taroub, in this Turkish-Syrian co-production from Turkish director Hulki Saner. Twin brothers separated at birth find different paths: one becomes a celebrated football player, the other toils in obscurity. When the football player goes missing, the brother must replace him for a very important match.

In this Turkish-edition poster, Lahham and Qalei loom from the top, in poses that suggest the perplexing nature of their scheme. Other characters look on in illustrations of scenes from the film. The burgundy and blue background combines with the colorful illustrations to make this poster really pop from a visual standpoint, and the Lahham-Qalei partnership is always appealing as a collectible.
