Soheir Zaki (1970) سهير زكي

Lasciamo d’una parte il sessismo e i cliché presentati qui da Dr Taufik.

Se la nostra Europa, quella del Sud, quella civilizzazione nata a Roma, Grecia, e partorita dall’ Oriente, la Persia l’India & Bro., perde il senso del assurdo, siamo persi nelle fredde mani di metallo dei veri europei, del brutto nord che ci vuole derubare, lasciandoci però nudi al confronto con la produttività (il Dio Demoniaco) senza altro per difenderci dalla vita e la morte … un grave senso di responsabilità. Pas de tout assurdo, ma infelice serietà e tristezza luterana, ci rimarrà come nesso d’unione fra noi, i vergognosi del Sud delle varie stelle sul blu.

 

Soheir Zaki performs in a scene from the 1970 Egyptian comedy ‘El Maganeen el Talata‘ (The 3 Lunatics/المجانين الثلاثة ). The film’s a comedy and tells the story of three friends, a journalist, a psychiatrist and a veterinarian, played by El Deif Ahmed, George Sidhom and Samir Ghanem. The vet invents a machine that changes the size and age of rabbits that he’s stolen from his neighbours….then he tries the machine on people. El Deif Ahmed (the short one), George Sidhom (the portly one) and Samir Ghanem (the other one) collectively made up a trio named ‘Tholathy Adwa’a El Masrah'(ثلاثي أضواء المسرح ) which is probably best translated as ‘Three Stage Lights’‎. They appeared together in many films, plays and Ramadan tv series until El Deif Ahmed’s death in 1970 at the age of 33. Sidhom and Ghanem continued as a duo until 1982 when Sidhom retired due to ill health. Samir Ghanem has gone on to have a successful film and stage career.
Trivia: The same scene featuring Soheir Zaki was used again in the 1973 Egyptian film ‘(The) Stubborn’ (Al Aanid العنيد ) which starred Farid Shawki and Nahid Sherif.
