Omar Sharif in his last cinematic role. Brilliant and women-oriented, the drama offers a close look at upper-class Moroccan society and the clash between Eastern and Western cultures which in many ways is symptomatic of the Moroccan way of life, reiterating the unfair male-female equation in the country.The event was a nice social occasion to get a glimpse of the more relaxed anti-Covid 19 measures which the Kingdom of Thailand will fully adopt as per July 1.
