Struggle on the Nile

1959 Rated NR 2hr

Two men vie for the love of a beautiful gypsy stowaway aboard a Cairo-bound boat traveling up the Nile. Intense passion, mystery and intrigue abound in this sensual noir-ish drama starring a pre-Hollywood Omar Sharif. Directed by Atef Salem, this classic black-and-white film stands as a prime example of the golden age of Egyptian cinema, which flourished from the 1950s through the mid-'70s.
