The Aquarium (2008)
About The Aquarium
Youssef is a hotshot anesthesiologist who often sleeps in his car for privacy. Laila is the careerist host of a late night radio call-in show. These two members of Cairo’s elite, lost souls traveling parallel paths of longing and disconnection, are the principal fish in Yousry Nasrallah’s The Aquarium, a meditation on the intellectual capital of the Middle East, now bent under the sway of repression in all its forms.
