The Closed Doors

1999 NR

The winner of several international awards, this moving drama explores how cultural restrictions in contemporary Egyptian society affect a sexually confused teenager. Mohamad (Ahmed Azmi) lives alone with his hardworking mother (Sawsan Badr). After he's suspended from school for spying on girls through a peephole, Mohamad tries to understand his taboo longings. He soon turns to a fanatical Islamic group -- a move that leads him down a dark path.
