A New Day in Old Sana'a2005

  • 3.5
In this achingly romantic tale, handsome young Tariq is about to marry Bilquis, eldest daughter of a prominent and powerful judge. But as he wanders the ancient city of Sana'a late one night, he spots a beautiful young woman dancing in the street and falls madly in love with her. Before long, the young groom must choose between following his heart and protecting his family's honor. Filmed entirely on location in the ancient city of Sana'a, this exquisite film is the first feature ever to come out of Yemen.

Amazing movie, I think. It has a very interesting story that deals with romance and the hardships of continuing traditions. It teaches one a lot about the traditions and culture of old Arabia and Sanaa in particular.

one of the most beautiful movies I experience. II know the story, the images, will remain in me for a long long time. A real portrait of a culture unknown to many.
