Lagoonie Film Production and Rise Studios released the trailer for Amir Ramsis’ highly-anticipated movie A NOSE AND THREE EYES — a contemporary rendition of Ihsan Abdel-Quddous' novel, which was originally adapted into a film in 1972.
The trailer opens with a compelling monologue by Dhaffer L'Abidine’s Hashem on the nature of surrender, introducing us to the character’s restless nature and his struggles with making meaningful decisions at a point in his life in which he has much to lose.
After introducing the film’s heroines — Amina Khalil’s character, who seems to be hung up on Hashem, and Salma Abu Deif’s young and innocent Ruba — we cut to a thought-provoking discussion between Hashem and his therapist, played by the talented actress Saba Mubarak, in which he explores a persistent nightmare that plagues him.
As the trailer progresses, Hashem goes into more detail about the nature of his dream as we see snippets of his troubled childhood, prompting the audience to ponder just how much familial trauma can affect someone’s ability to maintain a healthy relationship.
A NOSE AND THREE EYES revolves around Dr. 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.
A NOSE AND THREE EYES had a great global debut as part of the Arab Spectacular Program at the third Red Sea International Film Festival, where it was well received by audiences and critics alike.
Directed by Amir Ramsis and scriptwriter Wael Hamdy, A NOSE AND THREE EYES has a starry ensemble cast that includes Dhaffer L'Abidine, Saba Mubarak, Salma Abudeif, Sedky Sakhr, Gihan El-Shamashergy, 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.
