How disgusting could it get? “Ghadi“, the movie is suffering from piracy in its own country.
Is that how local production is supported? I mean, it’s still showing in the movies! Way to go. In any case the copy is so lousy and it’s not even worth spending your LBP 1000 on it.
If you want to do the right thing, support an industry that already suffers to find proper funding, head to the cinemas and get the real experience.
This is what the company had to say about this:
“That the Lebanese film ” Ghadi ” which is now showing in Lebanese cinemas with unprecedented success ( 65 000 spectators in only one month) is now being illegally sold on pirated CDs in the market. This is a clear act of piracy; the perpetrators of this act and sellers of the film will be prosecuted legally and will be subject to severe fines .
We would also like to inform the public that the quality of the pirated copy is extremely poor; the story is incomplete and and different from the original one.
The film ” Ghadi ” by director Amin Dora, written by and starring George Khabbaz is the intellectual property of the company “The Talkies” and is still showing in the Lebanese cinemas. We ask the public to encourage and protect National cinema production and watch ” Ghadi ” in the cinemas .
The management of the production company The Talkies”
