lagoonie film production releases official poster for a nose and three eyes, announces world premiere at rsiff

Cairo - Egypt | Monday, January 08, 2024

Egyptian production giant Lagoonie Film Production has just released the official poster for their highly-anticipated drama A NOSE AND THREE EYES, coinciding with the announcement that the film will be holding its world premiere at the Red Sea International Film Festival (RSIFF). 

The poster depicts Tunisian actor Dhaffer L'Abidine — who plays Dr. Hashem, the film’s protagonist — surrounded by the women who have influenced his life, who are portrayed by Saba Mubarak, Salma Abu Deif, Amina Khalil, Nora Cheichaa, and Gihan El-Shamashergy. 

The film is a modern adaptation of Ihsan Abdel-Quddous' novel of the same name, which was first made into a feature film in 1972. Lagoonie Film Production, in association with Rise Studios, is expected to release it later this year with high hopes for critical acclaim following its world premiere as part of the RSIFF’s Arab Spectacular Program. 

The festival is set to take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and will be running from November 30th to December 9th. 

A NOSE AND THREE EYES follows Doctor Hashem — a renowned plastic surgeon in his mid-40s who remains single despite having been in two long-term relationships before. 

However, when he meets Ruba — a woman who is 25 years his junior — he finds himself unable to resist her charms and allure despite the age gap.

Directed by Amir Ramsis and written for the screen by Wael Hamdy, A NOSE AND THREE EYES boasts an ensemble cast that includes Dhaffer L'Abidine, Saba Mubarak, Salma Abudeif, Sedky Sakhr, Gihan El-Shamashergy, Nora Cheichaa, Salwa Mohamed Ali, Nabil Maher, and Selim Mostafa — the child celebrity who won audiences' hearts in the role of Younis in WHY NOT? — as well as Amina Khalil, who will be appearing as a guest of honor.
