Downtown Girls (2005) - (dir: Mohamed Khan) Egyptian one-sheet

Plot summary: Yasmin (Menna Shalabi) and Jumana (Hend Sabri) were friends who worked in shops in downtown Cairo. Yasmin worked for a hairdresser and Jumana worked in a dress shop. They both lived in simple social circumstances. One day they met two boys on the metro, Samir (Khaled Abol Naga) who worked as a cook in a hotel and Othman (Mohamed Nagati) who worked at a telephone company. The relationship developed slowly. At first, in one of several incidents in which she told lies, Yasmin told the boys her name was Jumana and her friend's name was Yasmin, but the relationship continued and the boys thought they could get the girls easily. Samir introduced his girl (Yasmin) to his father and the father was comfortable with this relationship, but Jumana did not like Othman's narrow-mindedness and told him she did not want to get married. The friendship continued between the two girls even though Yasmin married Samir and had a son with him. The film's title song is performed by Riko as an event at a recording studio. Cast: Khaled Abol Naga, Hend Sabri, Menna Shalabi, Mohamed Nagati, Ahmed Bedir, Manal Afifi, Ahmed Rateb, Kamal Abdel Aziz, Magda El-Khatib, Riko, directed by Mohamed Khan, written by Wassam Soliman
