Albawaba.com - Amman
The renowned Egyptian actress, Faten Hamamah, has finally decided to quit her cinema career. She sees her film “Land of Dreams,” which is directed by Yahya al-Fakhrani, and costars Yahya al-Fakhrani as her last film.
The present lack of good scripts that suit the older generation of actresses was behind the artist’s decision.
Faten has been the undisputed queen of the Egyptian cinema for the past 50 years during which time she has played many roles that have captivated the feelings of people of all ages in Egypt and other Arab countries. This is due to her sincerity in performance, and brilliance in work, whether in form or content, for which she was nicknamed “The Lady of the Arab Screen”.
Faten has made over 150 films the two most important of which are considered to be “Conflict in the Valley”, and “Conflict in the Port” in which she co-starred with her former husband, the international actor Omar al-Sharif.
Faten performed in many TV series including “From Behind Doors” along with Ahmad Ramzi, “Dhamir Ablah Hikmat,” “Consciousness of Teacher Hikmat,” and “Moon Face” which was screened during Ramadhan last year.
The actress has recently starred in an anti-war film that highlights the tragedies and devastating consequences of war on innocent children and the elderly in Palestine in particular, and the rest of the world in general.
