MUBI's take

In this acclaimed melodrama, the tempestuous waters of Alexandria play host to the tensions between individuality and community. The critique of inequality, and the tug-of-war between loyalty and betrayal, is intensified by the volatile pairing of real-life couple Omar Sharif and Faten Hamama.
