Al Watar - A tune that can only be played by two

I just watched this movie on TV  the night it was aired for the first time, I liked it a lot and wanted to write about it ..

Ghada Adel: Maissa 
Arwa Gouda : Menna 
Mostafa Shaaban: Seleem 
Ahmed El Saadany: Hassan 
Swasan Badr : The Mother 
Written by: Mohamed Nayer 
Directed by: Magdy EL Hawary 
Music by:  Sa7ara

I liked the movie as a whole.. It would seem in the beginning that its another crime mystery movie were the killer is the least expected character , but it turns out to be totally different, what we discover through the movie is more shocking than knowing the identity of the killer.                      

Probably I don't know the right technical terms for these things, but the cinematography is matching so much with the mood.. gloomy and dark. The way Maissa always appears with shadows on her face makes you try to look closer to figure out what is she about , it adds to the mystery of the whole thing. 

The scenes are quick and events flow rapidly back and forth in time, and also in the imagination of the characters.. so missing a minute would make you feel lost. 

The music is just WoW! .. the final scene where both Maissa and Menna are playing while the whole story reveals in Selim's head as if the dual tune whispered to him the secrets of the truth .. They killed Hassan together in slow motion as if they danced in a couple dance on the tune.. I got goosebumps.. looking at their eyes and thinking how they both suffered from long years of insecurity and Hassan whom they both hung some hopes on, betrayed them and disappointed their expectations.."He deserved it!", thats what I thought while he was dying with their hands on the an amazing piece of music.. 

Menna's character is brilliant! How she seemed at first so sweet and needy , always insecure and helpless, the existence of her sister makes her weak, hateful and submissive.. Then, the layers start to fall revealing the power within her ..actually she is only complete with her sister's existence, that's only when she is in full power, and confident. She forms with her "A tune that can only be played by two" 
Really brilliant ! that quote really sums up the whole thing.

Maissa in my eyes is a protector.. she protected her sister , mother and herself by the only way her corrupt upbringing made her think of.. I admire her much..she is strong ..though yet she is also incomplete without Menna. 

I couldn't figure out Seleem.. did he realize the truth of his unfaithful wife from the beginning and that what made him emotionally unstable? or that the fact he killed her by mistake? but in both cases it made him the right man in the right place.. to set the girls free with a perfect shot right in their head of their perverted step father. 

Arwa Gouda is a great actress with amazing abilities, Ghada Adel as well did a good job.. As for Mostafa Shaaban , I'd say he wasn't bad as this role was far away from being romantic which never suits him in my opinion . Ahmed El Saadany was perfect for the girls player role ..but didn't convince me as a heart breaker who is able to make both girls fall for him. 

Sa7ara the band did a great job with music.. was out of this world!

As a whole the film is really good and I enjoyed it.

I miss you

I miss you..
I miss you so much..
I need you.. I need you to make every thing feels right again..
Without you, its hard to grasp anything.. every thing is irritating.. and makes no sense.. 
Come back to me my sweatheart... I'm longing for every thing about you..
Your smell.. Your richness.. I need to indulge my self in your taste..
When I'm alone with you.. suddenly happiness invades me..
I could smile.. understand.. feel good about every thing..
My Dear cup of coffee.. I miss you

She Said..

The so called "Worry about you" is only your cover up for "Jealous sick". Admit it for God's sake!

I always wonder, if you'r gonna do what YOUR MIND tells you, why ask for MY choice in the first place? Have fun with your mind! 

Always be sure I never miss a word you say; When I ask you to repeat what you just said, it means you got another chance to change it!

When I ask you to hold my hand in public might mean: I'm teasing your x-girlfriend, My hand is cold, or I simply miss you.. 

Staying by your side should be added to "Best Things EVER" list. But hurt me and your Name will be added to "R.I.P" list..

I know the reason behind your boredom, you lost your favorite hobby: "Seeking my attention". Now  that you've got it, no wonder you'r bored..

To be cnt..

A song by Nancy Sinatra: Bang Bang

I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang
He shot me down, bang bang
I hit the ground , bang bang
That awful sound, bang bang
My baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play

Bang bang
I shot you down, bang bang
You hit the ground , bang bang
That awful sound, bang bang
I used to shoot you down

Music played and people sang…
Just for me the church bells rang…

Now he's gone I don't know why
And till this day some times I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang
He shot me down, bang bang
I hit the ground , bang bang
That awful sound, bang bang
My baby shot me down.

I can't live in those doubts any more...

sometimes I'm certain and sometimes I'm half way back...

It's proven in front of my eyes 100 times,but I tell my self this can't be true...

I wanted to scream out loud many times, pointing my finger to what is quiet clear under my nose...but something tells me "shut up! it's not enough"...

The more I see, the more I'm sure...but the more I'm silent,the more I'm loaded,the more I'm losing the common sense,the nonsense acts keep flowing out of me...

Is it the silence that causes nonsense?? or is it nonsense to be silent ?? overloading causes explosion!

When I tried to let out smoothly the steam causing the pressure within me , thinking that letting it out will bring me relief...

I was wrong...

In fact I felt all of it just vanished in the air and non was taken seriously...because its just steam!... vapor!... nothing!


Doubts are always like steam...stressing with no solid existence...

 If they had solid existence they would have not been called "Doubts" they'd be called "Facts" ...

So I decided never to let it loose again, let it just fill me in the inside, stressing me... driving me crazy...

Till the explosion finally comes...

but explosions shatter things into pieces...brakes it...hurts it so bad .... that its impossible to restore it back again...

Could that happen to Me?? My heart?? My life??...

It wont make any difference... the doubts are messing me up, making me act like a fool...

and it breaks my heart with fear that those doubts are true...

and my life became tasteless...nothing is enjoyable any more...

what can happen worse??!!
