    Palace Walk
    (Bein el-Qasrein)
    (1956, fiction, 2 hours)
    This is one of the most important classics in Egyptian
    movie history. It is based on a novel by Nobel prize
    winning author Naguib Mahfouz. The novel is part of
    Mahfouz’s famous trilogy about Cairo which follows
    the life of the Cairene patriarch Al-Sayyid Ahmad Abd
    al-Jawad and his family across three generations,
    from 1919 – the Egyptian revolution against the British
    Colonizers to the end of the Second World War in
    1944. The novel and the movie provide an extensive
    look at Cairo’s society
