“a pressure cooker of lust, jealousy, and psychosis” BBC Films
Youssef Chahine, Egypt’s famous director, plays the main character himself in this naturalistic attention-grabbing masterpiece of drama and suspense at Cairo Station. Vibrantly he embodies Qinawi, the lame and simple-minded newspaper boy whose frustrated desire for a flirty lemonade girl is fanned into tragedy.
“an unmissable film” Guardian
