    There is a movie made in Japan about a mother taking lessons and her husband forbids it. Give me a second and I'll try to find it. Maybe it's already been posted or someone knows which film I'm speaking of.

    Hummmm. Is that new movie? I know "TANKA" (2006) has belly dance seen, but not mother taking lesson or something... I never seen this movie, but my friend talked about it.

    Default An oldie

    I've just been rewatching Nour el Ayoun - a great movie starring Fifi Abdou as the girl whose father is murdered by a rival and plots revenge over decades. About 20 minutes dancing all up (a moving piece in the prison in a internal beledi style, Fifi celebrating in the carpet factory then her emergence as the "best dancer in town"). At one point Amera's Palace sold it with subtitles.

    I was looking for info on Kathy Najimy and came across this:
    Two Sisters (2008) (TV)

    It doesn't give any info on IMDB but Kathy's website says it's a movie,directed by and co-starring Margaret Cho, that takes place in the belly dancing world. I'm going to go look for it and if I can find it I'll post back with a review.

    i saw this trailer on you tube but i cannot remember the name of it.

    i would really like to start a collection of belly dance movies to have as part of my library though, but right now i'm most intrigued by "Whatever Lola wants" based on the trailers i've seen.

    Bethune Sur Nil. It's a 2005 French film, about a french bellydancer who travels to Egypt to continue her dance training and goes on to become a famous dancer in Cairo. In reviews of the film, it says that the movie was inspired by (or based on) the life of a real dancer named Ketty. I think the version I saw had english sub titles, or else I understand alot more french than I thought, because I understood the movie with no problem. Yeah, must have had subtitles.
    It's a Cinderella type movie...the actress in the lead role is so obviously not a bellydancer, and there were several inaccuracies that I spotted, but it's entertaining and fun.
    Here's a review and clip:

    BĂ©thune sur Nil sera sur France 3 le 12 janvier

    I've seen Ketty dance! She was one of the performers at the Ahlan wa Sahlan festival, I think the closing gala, in one of the early years I went there. Maybe 2003? It was the year before the ban on foreign dancers, anyway. What a riot!

    Did you see Bethune Sur Nil on DVD or in a theater? I"d love to get this on DVD - any idea where to find it?

    That's cool. I had never heard of her until this movie. The only Ketty I'd heard of was the Australian dancer.
    I saw this movie on EuroChannel which we have on cable and I'm pretty sure it had subtitles. They still air it every couple of months or so.
    I don't think the DVD is out yet, but I'm pretty sure it probably will be soon. I checked Amazon France and they have a list of DVD's that this actress (Louise Monot) has starred in that they carry,, but Bethune Sur Nil wasn't listed among them, I would guess that it's because it's fairly new still. Maybe you could ask at Amazon. Here's the page on Amazon where I found her other DVD's.

    Louise Monot

    I've seen Sabah quite a few times - it's been showing frequently on cable recently. I really love this movie and how dancing is linked to the character finding her personal freedom and femininity.
