A Man In Our House (Fi Baitina Rajul)

FILM000054
Based on the famous novel by Ihsan Abdel Quddous, this 1961 classic is set prior to the 1952 revolution and stars the legendary Omar Sharif in one of his most memorable roles.

Sharif plays Ibrahim, a member of the underground resistance who seeks refuge from the so-called "political police" by taking shelter in the home of a civil servant and his family.

Directed by Henri Barakat, this film offers a vivid depiction of the Egyptian resistance to the British occupation and features some of Egypt's finest filmmaking talents.
