BFI introduction:
In Chahine’s charming feature debut – a moving tribute to his father – Amin’s ghost returns from the afterlife to witness his family suffering the consequences of a shady business deal he was involved in. The film marked Faten Hamamah’s dazzling screen debut and foregrounds the socio-political undercurrents that would run through much of Chahine’s subsequent work.
