The Traveller

Release Date
Story by

Nearing the end of his life, Hassan realizes he can recall only three days. In 1948, Hassan (Khaled El Nabawy) begins his first job by delivering a telegram to Port Said's great beauty, Nour (Lebanese pop singer Cyrine Abdelnour in her film debut), who becomes the love of his life - but for only one night.In 1973, middle-aged Hassan gets a phone call from a woman who sounds exactly like Nour. When he meets the young woman, Nadia, he suspects he may be her father. In 2001, the elderly Hassan (now played by Omar Sharif) meets Nadia's son, Ali. Their similarities convince Hassan he has met his grandson - but suddenly, Ali disappears… Although set against the backdrop of key moments in Egypt's recent history, The Traveler is about the personal, not the political. This enormously impressive debut is a moving meditation on a man's fumbling search for his identity, which reflects that of his nation.
