The film is co-produced by Front Row’s Yalla Yalla unit with Egypt’s Film Clinic and Lebanon’s Empire Entertainment.
Netflix has released the official trailer for the upcoming Arabic remake of the Italian hit Perfect Strangers. The film will release on January 20.
It features a pan-Arab cast coming together for the first time including Eyad Nassar, Nadine Labaki, Mona Zaki, Georges Khabbaz, Adel Karam, Fouad Yammine and Diamand Abou Abboud.
Perfect Strangers, the first Arabic Netflix film based on the 2016 Italian hit Perfetti sconosciuti, tells the story of seven close friends who get together for dinner and decide to play a game that involves them placing their cell phones on the dinner table, and agreeing to openly share every call, text and voice message as it comes. What starts out as fun, quickly unfolds into an uncharted path of untold secrets that reveals more than what they wish to share.
Perfect Strangers marks Wissam Smayra’s debut as a film director. The film is produced by Front Row Filmed Entertainment, Film Clinic, Empire Entertainment and Yalla Yalla and is the first of many films produced by Front Row as part of a first-look deal signed with Netflix.
The film will be available in 190 countries on Netflix, subbed in 31 languages, and dubbed in three languages.
