A fine film from a modern master. - Daughter of the Nile review by TE

Spoiler Alert
25/06/2018

I had to double-check that this film came out in 1987, it feels (and looks) as if it cames out in 2017.

The family setting is brilliantly portrayed and the whole tale is told with apparently casual touches and glancing references.

There is a sense of brewing tragedy from early on, but the tone is varied with moments of humour and an overall humane warmth.
