Official Selection: New York Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival

From world-renowned Egyptian filmmaker Youssef Chahine (Destiny, Alexandria...Why?), THE OTHER is a delirious love story between Adam (Hani Salama), the son of corrupt, domineering female industrialist, and Hanane, a beautiful but impoverished newspaper reporter.

Unfortunately, Adam's mother Margaret (Nabila Ebeid) is possessive to the point of violence and will stop at nothing to get rid of Hanane. In her efforts to control her son, Margaret bribes her daughter-in-law's brother, a fanatical thug who belongs to a fundamentalist terrorist cult, to lure Hanane into a deadly trap.

Among the passionate embraces, extravagant musical numbers and a stirring vision of a harmonious, multi-cultural Middle East, Chahine unravels the connections among naked greed, corrupt power, Western "globalization" and religious fanaticism.
