A mix worth seeing
4 May 2002 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

An interesting mix of the struggles of an independent international filmmaker, combining surrealism and recent Egyptian history.

There are elements of "8 1/2" and "All That Jazz" in the story of a film maker who faces a trial in which the child and young man he was testify against the person he has become. The surrealist settings are cheap but fun and the central performance is nicely done. The many characters and switches in time are a bit complex and it helps to have a little knowledge of modern Egyptian history, but there is humor and insight worth your time.
