directed by Fahad Meri.
The series is centered in one of the old neighborhoods of Aleppo in the era of Salaf, where the author Mohammed Abu Maatouk moves between various stories that evoke a reality that sparked controversy in the Aleppo society.
The series carries a variety of images of different issues, in a complex dramatic framework that includes many political, social and cultural lines and references. It deals with such noble issues of humanity as sacrifice, tolerance, openness, love, patriotism, originality and harmony, which made it rich in its dramatic content and main lines.
For example, the figure of Abul-Keif embodies the reality of perversion, while the figure of Abul-Rus expresses ignorance, arrogance and authoritarianism. The figure of Sheikh Abu Saleh represents filial tenderness and moderate religiosity.
The writer also reviewed the image of manifestations of puritanism and religious fundamentalism through the character of Hajj Bakri, in which it interferes in a fraternal way with the character of Sheikh Saleh. The character of the girl Safiya was a symbol of the love that arose in the course of this complex religious encounter.
The text dealt with many aspects of the Arab reality through the reality of Aleppo at that time, such as underdevelopment, the death of Razia as a result of neglect, the forced marriage of the girl Sumaya, and the weakening of security due to the power of the Hara leaders.
The work also dealt with the relationship of ignorance and science through the relationship of the school triumph with her friend the clairvoyant, and the writer was able to monitor and formulate these aspects brilliantly in a very complex dramatic context, which made us eager to follow the episodes and know the developments of events that were difficult to predict due to the elaborate alternation of events.
For the artistic performance, the character of Jaber Abu al-Rus presented high ingenuity and mastery, managed to evoke the character and combine it with cowardice and tyranny, embodied a socio-political conflict in the Aleppo district. The artist Al-Laith Mufti greatly excelled himself in this role, and provided a distinctive performance and facial divisions that harmonize with the sad and innocent character of the character of Ibrahim the orphan.
As for Jabr’s humor, her performance was outstanding, but she was criticized for her lack of harmony with the character of Intisar. Samer kasuha gave a great performance and managed to balance between humor and idiocy to be a barrier that limits the impact of tragedies at work, and performed the character spontaneously and spontaneously, and was able to make us sympathize with him as he was the cause of the disasters suffered by the heat despite his indirect character.
Ruwad Aliyu also gave a very distinctive performance, successfully expressing the character’s features vividly and full of life, which made her one of the best actresses in the work deservedly. Nasser wardiani gave an outstanding performance and won the audience’s acclaim in the role of Hajj Bakri, and he was clashing with the character of Safia, his niece, in a conflict dominated by suspicion and hostility to women.
Riyad wardiani performed the role of Sheikh Saleh brilliantly, and his performance was characterized by calmness and great experience, completely unlike his brother in moderation, tolerance and championing pure and chaste love in an open and respectful manner.
