Syria, 2010  TV  

Sulaf Fawakherji, Fathy Abdel Wahab, Mohey Esmail
Directed by Wael Ramadan


Syrian tv production that portrays queen Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Egypt, as played by Syrian star Sulaf Fawakherji, who made a career out of playing women with tragic endings. It focuses on her early years, the relationship with her father Ptolemy and how she became heir to the throne after his death. Made in the usual Syrian epic-drama tradition, all characters enunciate their lines in classical Arabic and spend their time engaged in heated debates about nobility and the importance of loyalty. Syrian landscapes fill in for Alexandria and Rome.
