Very disappointing---I cannot believe this is considered a classic. I am only glad that I had borrowed it from the library before I wasted a point on it.
The scenes are so disjointed that one cannot make sense of what happened in between. Sharif does not come off as likable character to feel any sympathy. And the other actors read their parts too deadpan unless they are are shouting (in which they are even less convincing in their parts).
