By Nour El Hoda Fouad

CAIRO, Nov. 26 (SEE) – The first show of Egyptian independent film ‘No One is There’ or ‘The Giraffe’ will be displayed at 2018 Marrakech International Film Festival that is set to run from November 30 till December 8.

The film’s first show was at the 4oth edition of the Cairo International Film Festival amid various opinions and comments on it.

All who watched the film agreed that the story of the movie is ambiguous.

Directed by Ahmed Magdy, the Giraffe is his first film after he starred in Ali, the Goat and Ibrahim and Mawlana movies.

Magdy, in his film, depended on youth stars who don’t have a strong experience like Amr Hosny, Shaza Moharram, Haidy Qousa, Salma Hassan, Rasha Magdy, Mohamed El-Badawy, and Osama Gawesh.

The movie tells a story about a young man who is lost in a city and found himself helping a pregnant woman whom he does not know, by providing her enough money to have an abortion. He was involved with an eccentric group of young people led by an enigmatic girl who is trying to uncover the mystery behind the Giraffe hidden at the zoo.

Some stars who watched the film didn’t understand the film well because they believed that there is a correlation between the pregnant woman and the hidden giraffe.
