NEWS/Nicolas Mouawad -Best Lead Actor

The Lebanese actor Nicolas Mouawad is portraying the best picture of our beloved country, Lebanon, for his main role in the film " Takassim Hobb " (Love's improvisations), playing alongside with the actress Darren El- Khatib. In the United Kingdom, he won the best lead actor award in London International Film Festival. The Film directed by the Egyptian director Youssef Deeb and produced by a Canadian production company "Pictures Pond Media" created this film in Dubai.

Unfortunately, Nicolas was not able to attend the festival and receive his award personally, because of prior engagements. He did not expect to win the award after he was nominated, as the candidates were belonging to various countries around the world, making the competition very tough. The actor Nicolas Mouawad was nominated to this award after the film had participated in many European festivals in Saint Tropez and Madrid this month month, where it was nominated for five awards, one of them was the best lead actor award.

"Love's improvisations" is a Drama in the style of the Swedish director Engmar Burgmen, but without his well-known mystery, he participated in the international premiere of the film, in Dubai film festival in December 2012.

In a recent television appearance, the director and producer of the film, Youssef Deeb, said that, so far, he could not find the time to work on the distribution of this film, and that he always wanted to participate in international festivals, and this film got its chance.

Youssef Deeb also added: "It seems to me that the best that the Arab festivals can do is to reveal the efforts put in creating movies, some of which really deserves to be revealed and known by the whole world. But these festivals cannot impose the number of viewers for any film, and cannot impose a practical focus attention in films after the show itself."

"Love's improvisations” is one of the best two Arab films of this type, that have been showed in recent months. The other film is "El Chita Elly Fat" for Ibrahim El Battout, which achieved a good reputation along with its participation in "Venice Festival". The Egyptian directors are now very enthusiastic to make new films, especially after that the film "Baed El Mawki'a" went to Cannes Festival last year.
