The Trap - الفخ


An artist is shocked to learn from an acquaintance that a medical condition means he does not have long to live. She agrees to marry him to comfort him in his few remaining days, but then discovers his lie. When the owner of the cabaret where she works also finds out, complications ensue for everyone. Mohamad Al-Rawwas directed this drama-thriller that stars Ejlal Zaki, Rafiq Subaie, and Mahmoud Qabil.

This poster features images from the film that depict a range of emotions: Ejlal Zaki has a look of shock and horror on her face, Qabil appears calm next to her, while Subaie presents a dramatic side look. Illustrations of a fight scene and a belly dancer hint at the story's action and mysteries. The title in yellow is rendered in a creative calligraphy font by artist Bitar. This is an attractive poster that appropriately celebrates its era.
