Iskanderija, kaman oue kaman AKA Alexandria Again and Forever (1989)
The film’s remarkable range of tone and style gives us evidence of an artist in full command of his craft. Chahine moves with equal grace from the scenes of backroom political squabbling to the whacked-out farce that is Chahine’s musical production (a la Jesus Christ Superstar) of the story of Alexander the Great — a film that allows him to make pointed attacks on the contemporary political situation in his homeland. Interspersed are scenes that show the director’s supreme confidence, such as a lovely and elegant dance sequence set in Berlin, and another set against the fountains of Cannes. Chahine’s assured hand shows us a man who is unafraid of looking foolish for attempting the grand artistic gesture.
Alexandria Again and Forever plays a little with the line between fantasy and reality, as the film shows us actors portraying real people who are playing actors in the movie within this movie. Or something like that. Yet, pulling it all together is the terrific performance of Youssef Chahine, as both director and actor. After casting others to play his cinematic proxy Yehia in the first two parts of the trilogy, Chahine steps into the role he was born to play, and does so beautifully. When Nadia (Yousra) wonders aloud why he gave up the craft he so clearly worships, we in the audience might be excused for asking the same thing.
