Synopsis / Plot
My Wife and the Dog is widely regarded as a landmark film, one that broke with established conventions of style and proposed a new approach to narrative structure and visual language. Painter and filmmaker Marzouk’s first fiction feature tells the story of a newlywed lighthouse attendant who leaves his wife behind on the mainland for months. In his solitude, memories of adulterous adventures from his bachelorhood obsess him to the point that he begins to suspect his wife. Evocative imagery and compelling performances from a cast of iconic Egyptian stars—including Soad Hosni, Mahmud Mursi, and Nour El-Sherif—lend the film a sweeping, emotional charge.
