Scheherazade, Tell Me a Story (Ehky Ya Schahrazad) A female talk show host in Cairo stirs up political controversy when she focuses her on-air discussions on the topic of women's issues. "Lively, swift, vibrantly colorful and for the most part wonderfully acted, the film is slyly aware of the daytime talk show as a vehicle for women's concerns." - Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times.
