The Return of the Prodigal Son 1976

  • Youssef Chahine
  • January 1, 1976
  • 120 mins
  • Arabic
  • Drama
In this Andre Gide adaptation, an activist is released after many years in prison and returns home, shaking up established relationships among his family members at the farm governed by his strict father. Demonstrating Chahine’s eclecticism, this is an elegant melodrama, exuberant musical, layered allegory, and profound portrait of personal and political disillusionment.
