This is controversial film narrated by Sherif Mounir as the voice of the six-year-old boy Na'eem as he recalls his upbringing. This film is about a Coptic family in 1960s Shubra in the time of Gamal Abdel Nasser's presidency; it pushes a number of religious, sexual and ethical boundaries in a story told by a 40-year-old man remembering his childhood conflicts with a father who assured him his love of film would surely lead to his eternal damnation. Some Copts in Egypt were offended by what they saw as a tendency to ridicule Chritianity and they tried though legal action to prevent it being shown.
