Destiny of her Own

Cherine Abou Nasr EI-Yafi

Abstract


"Destiny of her Own" is a lavish historical melodrama that has enough suds, sex, and flashes of flesh to appeal to soap opera lovers and enough substance to attract those of a more intellectual bent. It is beautifully filmed , wonderfully acted , and certainly nothing short of entertaining. It deals with themes of forbidden love, religious intolerance, subordination of women, sexual freedom, and the roles of pleasure and sin in a high-cultured society. While the movie does more than pay lip service to themes of female empowerment and religious intolerance, the main focus is hopeless romance.
