    The Paradise That Was Egypt
    The film, directed by Ruggero Gabbai, an Italian best known for his searing documentaries on the Holocaust, and presented during last month’s Jewish Film Festival at the Jerusalem Cinemathèque, vividly conjures up the intense and stimulating life of urbane Egyptians inhabiting a mid-century utopia.
