Between Two Palaces

(Bin el qasrin, 1964)

Directed by: Hassan Al Imam

Even though Mr Ahmed Abd el-Javad spends every afternoon after work in a bar with his friends and entertains easy women, in his home there is order and discipline. At least that is what he thinks … This classic Egyptian film based on the Nobel Prize winner Naguib Mahfouz’s novel, perfectly depicts the time when individuals parted from their families and created the Egyptian state.
