I just came from the Opera House after the disappointment of the day:
The film “Babel “ was supposed to be shown in a special screening in the Cinema Club presented by Rafeek Al Saban at 8 pm…that was written in Al Ahram newspaper…the movie-the date-the time and the place…so we all came and sat in the theatre waiting for the film to start....then the film started…but another film…not the film “ Babel “… so all people came out... extremely extremely angry…the funny thing is we all asked before entering the theatre if it is the film “Babel” or not…and they all said yes…aha…really…ok…people in this country who do not understand…I have an exam tomorrow…and I have wasted my money and my time in this bu*****t city…and I am furious…extremely furious...and I do not want to say bad words f**k you very much
