Thus he has films that are unflinchingly realistic, showing the misery of the poor against the setting of popular quarters The Beast, 1954 ; others focus on the details of middle-class life I am Free, 1959 ; and yet others on class contradictions between peasants and feudal lords on one hand al-Usta Hasan, 1952 , and the horrors of capitalist monopolies on the other hand al-Futtuwa, 1957 Salah Abu Seif has been claimed as a socialist as well as denounced for having represented taboo subjects such as the body This is Love, 1958 and gender issues The Agony of Love, 1960
