A friendship between a young Jew and an elderly Muslim is the core of this warm-hearted demonstration of Omar sharif's character-acting ability. At the last Frankfurt Book Fair, the film was awarded the Best Film Adaptation of a Novel honor, presented by the wife of Egypt's Premier, Mme Mubarak. Sharif is, simply, superb.
