Barakah yoqabil Barakah,
Barakah Meets Barakah is based on A features comedian and social-media superstar Hisham Fageeh, who plays a mild-mannered civil servant named Barakah. He finds himself running up against his society’s strict rules when he falls for Bibi, the outspoken and fashion-forward daughter of a wealthy couple.
On the other hand this is the story of Where little fears grow great, great love grows there” as Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, an all-male production of which provides the backdrop for Mahmoud Sabbagh’s Saudi Arabian romantic comedy Barakah Meets Barakah. Surely one of the more conventional movies ever to enjoy a premiere at the Berlinale’s risk-embracing Forum parallel section, it’s of considerable interest as a very rare cinematic export from a country where nearly all manifestations of cinema have been officially banned since 1979.
