Lesbianism is very very bad!

There is apparently en egyptian film in the works that “tackles” the issue of woman on woman love, and I say tackles in quotation marks because it’s..well..shit. Haven’t seen the movie yet, but the story so far….yeah, it’s shit. It’s starring Ola Ghanem and Dolly Chaheene- which means we will get eye-candy and semi-nudity but no real acting what-so-ever- and the story goes as follows: Ola is a rich girl who has ” deviant urges” towards women, and towards Dolly in particular, who is of course not gay at all and dirt-poor (Please note that the Poor girl is the one without deviant urges. See..the rich are bad and deviant, the poor are wholesome and straight vanilla, anyway). So Ola uses her money to entice dolly to have an illicit affair with her- despite Dolly’s straightness- a temptation to which Dolly succumbs too, which kinda makes her a gay prostitute, well, prostitute for someone who is gay. You get it. Moving on. However, there is a twist: both women have men in their lives who don’t know about their Spritzer-like arrangement initially, but when they do, the moral judgment of the movie hits you with its heavy-handedness. Because, well, the moment Dolly’s guy finds out, he like, rapes her, while Ola’s guy tries to cure her of her gayness by the use of therapy. So, girls, least we forget, if you are poor and some rich girl convinces you- using money and charm- to clean her carpet, well, don;t do it, because once your boy finds out, he will rape your ass, and it will seem like a fair consequence to your transgression to the average person. However, if you are the rich girl type- thus attracting men of the non-rapist variety- well, seek therapy. There is always hope for you. Your desire for women can be cured. Nothing a few hours of Electric Shock Therapy coupled with memorizing the Koran can’t fix. Right? And maybe you should also wear the veil, and not hang out with men anymore, and go to women-only beaches, where the usually veiled girls take the opprutunity to get as naked as can be humanely allowed without actually being naked. I am sure that would cure you. Quite positive actually.

  2. Heh…. interesting they chose to address fem,ale homosexuality but not male homosexuality, right? I mean, Egypt really needs to keep those latent homosexual (maybe not so much “latent”) cops who like to sodomize male prisoners on the job!

  3. “It’s starring Ola Ghanem and Dolly Chaheene- which means we will get eye-candy and semi-nudity but no real acting what-so-ever”.

    How come you are so positive when the script has not been filmed yet, or even obtained the consent of the censorship agency???

  4. As long as Angelina Jolie exists, there will always be lesbian/bi-sexual urges in the hearts of women… Oh, and Halle Berry, and Selma Hayek, and that cute little chick in Pushing Daisies, and… Oh dear.

  5. I have to disagree about your Ola Ghanem comment. I think Ola did a couple of good roles one in “Sahar el Layal” she had a very good scene with Sherif Mounir in that movie that shows her acting skills.

    Also she did a series with Hesham Selim that was pretty good. Dolly Chahine you are absolutely right on the money. I know that Dalia El Behiry did some transsexual character not too long ago.

    I think it is good that the new movies are addressing those issues or should I say they allow them to address those issues.

    The rape in the plot you mention is revolting and I don’t get it. I guess we have to wait till we see the movie.

    It’ll probably win an Oscar next year!

  7. I was just about to send over the article to you SM…

    Lets get something straight first, the only reason this movie is only being done as a follow-up to the scene of Ghada Abdel-Razek & Somaya Al-Khashab due to the “controversy” that surrounded it….yeah, they’re milking it!

    “which means we will get eye-candy and semi-nudity but no real acting what-so-ever”

    Exactly!! Ola Ghanem might’ve had a good start in acting but lately she’s kinda being type-casted in such roles & as for Dolly….i have nothing to say really, i mean COME ON!!!

    anyway, this movie being Oscar-worthy is highly unlikely due to many many reasons & most probably it won’t be worth watching even but it WILL be a commercial success for at least the first couple of weeks in the Egyptian Box-office due to the male element & “i-haven’t-been-laid-for-SO-long” factor…but hey that’s just the way i see it.

  8. Slavin,

    What is the name of the movie of Ghada Abdel Razek and Somya El Khashab?

    “…both women have men in their lives who don’t know about their Spritzer-like arrangement initially”Now if I were twenty two again and could find a girl like this… Ahhh… lets not go there. Suffice it to say that I suspect that I’m not alone even in the Muslim world since you guys and gals seem to be into the multiple women thing in relationships much more than we are here in the West.

  10. Curt from Houston says:

    This brings up a question I’ve always had about the four wives deal that Muslims are down with. Is that a sort of Round Robbin affair or is it a communal sort of thing? I could really change my thinking on Islam depending on the answer. ;-)

  11. Twosret,

    It’s called “7eyn Mayssara” directed by Khaled Youssef…

    You have GOT to be kidding me.

  13. SlaViN,

    Thank you I will keep an eye on it when it is available to us here in the US.

  14. Egyptian gay genre films huh? Oh it will end up in a few select US cities.

    I’m starting to develop a new found respect for the Egyptian movie biz. Can’t wait for it to hit my local Blockbuster.

    As a previous poster stated wht is funniest about this and is really more a sad reflection on the simplicity of people’s minds in the Sick East (Middle East as some mistakenly call it), is the number of responses from all over the place asking for everyone’s head who had anything to o with the movie. Apparently this is a more serious issue than the dictators tha rule the entire region, bread lines, people forced to state their religion on a national id card (or not), women treated like cattle, female mutilation, highest illiteracy rates in the world, sinking shapes, falling out of the air planes, trains that crash on a more regular basis than they arrive at their destinations……shall i go on?

  16. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    I you want to see another movie about lesbian love, there was a movie recently about a lebanese and inidan girl (i think) that fall in love and struggle with their family’s behaviour.
