Outstanding Thrilling Comedy
14 February 2007 | by (Cairo) – See all my reviews

From one of the best movie crews in Egypt ,comes one of the best movies of all-time. (Terrorism& barbecue)is an excellent dramatic movie which you should never miss when you consider watching REAL Egyptian Drama. the movie begins with this simple citizen (ahmed) going to sign some important documents in the largest managerial institution in Egypt :cairo's Tahreer(liberty)institution where he is shocked directly by bureaucracy & the long long procedures that run into all the veins of the Egyptian managerial & human societies . pushed by his nervous pressure he loses his patience & attacks a security guard who tries to force him to leave the institution because the work-time is over just to find the guard's automatic gun in his hands shooting some fire all by accident .

while the chaos goes every where all inside the building, he finds that he had without any intention controlled the biggest managerial building in Egypt & also that the building is all surrounded by the army & that he had become the most wanted terrorist in Egypt and he's offered to negotiate his demands with the government. From the famous Egyptian triangle , actor Adel Emam,the script writer Waheed Hamed,the director Shereef Arafa comes this movie to unveil many problems under the skin of the Egyptian society,from the bureaucracy , passing by prostitution & poverty &ending with wrong understanding of the Islamic religious guidelines. with great direction of Arafa , well-woven script & great performance from all the actors without a single exception comes a movie which has all the elements of a good one melt together in a comedic but thrilling Egyptian Masterpiece which you miss a lot if u didn't watch it.

may be Adel Emam as an actor has a long history (more than 115 movies ),&so is Waheed Hamed as a script-writer & Arafa as a director but the 90's which the three worked together in these political-themed movies are the best for the three of them.
