The Great Unknown (1984)

Both of the following scenes are from the 1984 Egyptian film ‘Naema Fakha Muharama’ (Naema, the Forbidden Fruit  نعيمة فاكهة محرمة ).The clip starts with the best piece of villanish mustache twirling in years. The actor is Said Saleh and his shisha guy is played by Younes Shalaby.  This is followed by a scene in the local hammam (bath house) for the bride’s pre-wedding bath (hammam al arous).  There are very few of these old style bath houses operating in Cairo now. Later in the clip there’s a zar.
