I ordered a couple of dvds from the States, which have just arrived.

One is Mother of the Bride, with Tahia Carioca in a non-dancing role. I saw this one on the big screen, back when Natalie was able to arrange for this one, and Afrita Hanem to be shown in a cinema. It's in B/W, and very sweet. There's no dancing in it, other than a tiny bit of folkloric dance as entertainment in a club, as background. Weirdly, there isn't a bellydancer at the wedding. However, it's fabulously full of lovely cultural background.

The other is Welad el Balad, starring Saad & Dina. This one doesn't have subtitles, so it's one to watch with an open mind and open ear, for whatever plotline can be worked out. And enjoying Dina doing what she does best. One to share with diva_c, I feel! Lots of lovely Sha'abiness.
