Les Petits Chats

Egypt, 2014, 80 minutes, Color

In Person: Director Sherif Nakhla

Get ready to tap your feet to James Brown's "I Feel Good", The Beatles "With a Little Help From My Friends" and Ray Charles' "Unchain My Heart" — as performed by Egypt's legendary Les Petits Chats. Concerts by the 60s and 70s rock band were mobbed by loyal fans who danced the night away. Their songs, most of which were an eclectic array of American and European chart toppers, were amazingly and accurately choreographed. Sherif Nakhla's highly enjoyable documentary offers us an insight into the lives of the former band-mates during and after their glory days by tracking the life choices they made after their breakup in the 80s. Now major Egyptian celebrities and musicians, the six members are reunited for one last show. Beyond electrifying the crowds and reviving past thrills, that magical night also reignited a flame within each of the band members.—Various Sources
