The Thugs District - حارة العناتر


Two brothers inherit and manage a neighborhood public bath. One brother becomes a criminal and is sent to prison, while the other brother continues to manage the bath. When he's released from prison, the criminal brother demands that he own the bath exclusively. The neighborhood subsequently becomes a battleground in the resulting intra-family struggle. This action-drama film stars Naji Jabr, Fouad Ghazi, Yassine Bakoush, and Nahed Halabi.

Fouad Ghazi and Nahed Halabi are framed in a particularly romantic style, beneath a stone arch, blue sky, and flowers that symbolize their love. Naji Jabr looms as the violent brother, beckoning the viewer in a fighting pose. A colorful collage of scenes from the film creates a compelling context for the story. The images and titles are bright, crisp, and attractive.
