Restricted !!

January 19, 2014 Leave a comment

Today i was attending a movie at golden stars cinema, when an incident happen that made me really wanna write about in my blog .. it’s been so long since i had this feeling but i was soOOooo excited about it …
I returned home, logged in to my word-press account to find the surprise … I have not blogged one post from exactly 2 years !!
I used to love sharing my thoughts and writing and drawing and enjoying sometime on my blog, the feedback always counts..I will do my best to keep it up and write more often 🙂

Anyways, for some reason in Egypt now, there is a huge improvement in the foreign movie distribution. Variety of movies arrive Egypt sooner than they used to, if not in the same time of release at the USA ..
Recently, two “R”  rated movies were screened in Egypt, and they are considered two of the most important movies of 2013 .. The wolf of wall street & August: Osage County..
The two movies are great, their makers are the best in the industry and the 2 movies are nominated for Oscars in different departments …
First let me explain for those of you who doesn’t understand the film ratings:
MPAA or the Motion Picture Association of America introduced the system of rating in 1968 in order to provide parents with advance information about the content of movies to help them determine what movies are appropriate for their children at any age. The ratings are not intended to approve, disapprove or censor any movie.

The Ratings are … (as copied from Wikipedia)

G General Audiences “Nothing that would offend parents for viewing by children.”On the box: “All ages admitted”
PG Parental Guidance Suggested “Parents urged to give ‘parental guidance.’ May contain some material parents might not like for their young children.”On the box: “Some material may not be suitable for children”
PG-13 Parents Strongly Cautioned “Parents are urged to be cautious. Some material may be inappropriate for pre-teenagers.”On the box: “Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13”
R Restricted “Contains some adult material. Parents are urged to learn more about the film before taking their young children with them.”On the box: “Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian”
NC-17 No One 17 and Under Admitted “Clearly adult. Children are not admitted.”On the box: Same as the meaning

Here in Egypt we don’t have such specification, if any movie contains inappropriate material of any quantity or quality, it’s just labeled ” For Adults Only”
and thus the people working at the cinemas may not have an understanding for what the letter written there on the poster represents.. and accordingly most foreign movies are all ages admitted given the fact that Egyptian cinemas don’t screen nudity and sex scenes due to social beliefs ..

What Happened in The Wolf of Wall Street, was a bit ordinary, some teenagers, say 15 years old attended the movie. it contains some inappropriate language and excessive use of the word FUCK .. but again they are teenagers and they already hear it and say it .. besides it’s a comedy crime movie starring Leo Di Caprio, so it may be an attraction to their age !
what i faced today in August: Osage Country was a bit strange and it made me really think that it’s about time to introduce a certain rating system in Egypt or at least abide to the rating system applied for decades.
August:Osage County is a Drama movie, about a family misery. The movie deals with many social problems facing the the american community and is very breathtaking specially with the stunning performance of both Myrel streep and Julia Roberts. Just around the beginning of the movie a group of 13 years old girls entered the hall, laughing all the way till they reached their chairs. 15 mins later they started laughing again without a specific reason. Every one around them started shouting at them and shushing them! this incident repeated right after the intermission and at a very important and moving part towards the end of the movie, the thing that forced one of the attendees to call for the security and get them kicked out of the hall, of course they didn’t get out easily and distracted us from seeing the rest of the movie ..
I don’t ask a bunch of 13 years old gals to understand anything the movie was saying, i don’t want them to understand a movie discussing divorce and separation, cheating and drug addiction.. I just don’t want them to see it in the first place .. Disney’s FROZEN or any other Arabic comedy would have been a great entertainment for them ..

I had 2 problems today !
who permitted them to attend this movie in the first place? and who is blamed for letting them so disrespectful to others ?

إزاي ترضيللي حبيبتي
اتمعشق في اسمك وانتي
عمالة تزيدي في حيرتي
ومنتش حاسة بطيبتي ازاي
مش لاقي في عشقك دافع
ولاصدقى فى حبك شافع
ازاي انا رافع راسك
وانتي بتحني في راسي ازاي
انا اقدم شارع فيكى
وامالك من اللى ماليكى
انا طفل اتعلق بيكى
فى نص السكه وتوهتيه
انا لو عاشقك متخير
كان قلبى زمانه اتغير
وحياتك لفضل اغير فيكى لحد مترضى عليه
إزاي ترضيللي حبيبتي
اتمعشق في اسمك وانتي
عمالة تزيدي في حيرتي
ومنتش حاسة بطيبتي ازاي
مش لاقي في عشقك دافع
ولاصدقى فى حبك شافع
ازاي انا رافع راسك
وانتي بتحني في راسي ازاي
ازاى سايبانى بضعفى
طب ليه مش واقفه فى صفى
وانا عشت حياتى بحالها عشان ملمحش فى عينك خوف
وفى بحرك ولا فى برك ازاى احميلك ضهرك
وانا ضهرى فى اخر الليل دايما بيبات محنى ومكشوف
انا اقدم شارع فيكى
وامالك من اللى ماليكى
انا طفل اتعلق بيكى
فى نص السكه وتوهتيه
انا لو عاشقك متخير
كان قلبى زمانه اتغير
وحياتك لفضل اغير فيكى لحد مترضى عليه
إزاي ترضيللي حبيبتي
اتمعشق في اسمك وانتي
عمالة تزيدي في حيرتي
ومنتش حاسة بطيبتي ازاي
مش لاقي في عشقك دافع
ولاصدقى فى حبك شافع
ازاي انا رافع راسك
وانتي بتحني في راسي ازاي

The Circle of life

July 17, 2010 3 comments

Based on a true story…

He was 10 years old when returned back home to find a an old guy he has never seen before, the old man approached him and asked; what’s ur name? he took a glance at his father and the smile on his face gave him the security to answer: my name is (—-) what’s urs?  Although that first conversation went like any ordinary conversation between the two generations, but that man changed the life of the young child, three weeks passed and they met daily; he learnt everything he can learn at that age and the man taught him all what he can in that short time… One day, the old guy had to travel back to where he came from; that day wasn’t the best day for the young child, he lost two important things in one same day .. a friend and a feeling… but he was too young to understand.

It wasn’t long time afterwards when his father told him that he has to get dressed to meet someone he has not seen for long time. That day he saw a girl, that girl is his cousin who travelled with her family long ago, last time he saw her they were only 4 .. for the first time he feels he has memories and he found himself able to ask that question he always saw his father asking “Do you remember ….. ?”
He was so happy to see her, and he tried as much as he can to meet her during the family gatherings that occurred to welcome the visiting family.. but again one day she had to travel, they promised they will in keep in touch; this time he lost one important thing… but he was again too young to understand.

Years passed, and that young child was 16 when his cousin returned again for a visit … now he was old enough to understand:  in the three times he lost the family feeling; in the first visit of his uncle and the two of his cousin he felt the warmth of a family gathering, he saw people he loves all together; sitting, laughing and chatting. He felt like he had people to count on… and three times just after the visits end no one sees anyone.

He was 18 when the same feeling repeated; he asked, he got only one answer: The circle of life. Not the lion king’s circle of life of course, the other one, work and/or marriage, the circle that people always take as a reason to stop seeing each others and asking about each others. He wasn’t convinced, but he believed because they are the people he loves.

Days passed, and the same feeling repeated several times… the sudden gatherings with everyone around and the sudden loneliness when everyone leaves for the circle of life. His main problem was warmth; he used to feel it, but as he grew older, it decreased

He graduated, he entered the circle of life but he never felt that busy that he couldn’t meet those people … there were always time. Then he understood the trick .. the circle of life is not the real reason it’s only the fake one … the one used to convince people that they have no time even to eat during work and they return home exhausted and never able to answer their calls . The truth is if you really treasure someone, you will find a way to make him happy.. no matter how busy your life is …

One day, he sat in one of the what so called family gatherings; people were talking but he never heard them, they were saying funny stuff but he never laughed, exactly as if you are watching a movie and your speakers are muted.

He is not blaming anyone, nor blaming the circle of life … he could have done something to change things instead of saying the same reasons but it’s too late now

this was supposed to be a short story but it turned to be just another scattered thoughts that came up into my mind
