One of the year's top box-office hits! The movie follows the life of Sayed who lives in a poor neighborhood with his mother, a taxi driver, and his cousin, a tour-guide. He's troubled with financial problems caused by his uncle and a failed love story. This gets him closer to his girl neighbor and they start a project in front of a university, where students call him "Romantic Sayed".
Adel Imam plays the role of educated person who is forced to work as house servant to hide from the police.
In the depths of loneliness and despair, beautiful Aida visits her "tailor," Victoria, a woman who runs a sensual house where erotic fantasies are fulfilled. After satisfying her desires in the arms of one of Victoria's young men, Aida has a haunting nightmare where she envisions herself as a witch who, during a full moon, has the power to destroy her lovers' sensitivity. This disturbing dream sends Aida into a downward spiral of self-destruction. When Aida finally loses her will to live and all hope for salvation, she longs to purify herself and find forgiveness for her sins. Reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and the stylishly erotic films of Radley Metzger, The Lady of the Black Moons emerged from an era of relaxed censorship in Egypt.
