Abstract

The story of “Shafiqa and Metwally” belongs to the Folk Loyal with epic features, which pushes the filmmakers to an artistic direction with a special character, which quickly turns into a cinematic model of a visual epic with an accumulated historical weight.
The result of analytical study came with plastic arts values for the film scenes, for example, but not limited (primitive nature, which added to the image confusion between classic Islamic methods in the manuscripts and the spontaneous expression - hatred of emptiness and avoiding details - disregarding highlighting the rules of perspective -  sparse distribution of colors in the aspects of frame to serve the epic conflict).

Finally, this study was able to shed light on this type of films, which are plastic and aesthetic worth linked to the Egyptian and Arab identity, its role helping to maintain our heritage from extinction, also stimulates the possibility of taking the epic stories in contemporary cinematic work.
