Modern-day Egyptian society is assessed by chronicling the comings and goings of tenants residing in the Yacoubian Building, a Cairo apartment complex built in 1937 to house the city's upper class, now home to both the moderately respectable and the impoverished. Set in the 1990s, the story follows characters whose decadent, secular lifestyles fuel Islamic fanaticism. Adapted from Alaa' Al-Aswany's novel; Adel Imam, Nour El-Sherif star. 165 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Arabic; Subtitles: English. In Arabic with English subtitles.
