Mohamed Abdel Wahab Movies

topic posted Fri, October 24, 2008 - 10:43 AM by  Kitiera
Hi! I'm looking for plots of the M. Abdel Wahab movies El Warda el Baida (The White Rose), Doumou' el Hob (Tears of Love), and Lustu Malakan (I'm no Angel).

I've spent days and days researching Abdel Wahab's movies and can't find these descriptions anywhere. Have any of you seen them? Can you tell me what they're about? Or can someone point me to a good resource?

Just for fun, I'll post some descriptions of his other movies in this thread....
