Passionate Performance
12 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles, USA) – See all my reviews

A passionate performance highlights this stirring tale of being condemned for who you are and not for what you have done. Director and star Fareed Al-Oboudi has symbolically used the interrogation to reveal how we deal with each other as human beings. His suspect cannot fathom why people who do not really know him can think the worst before factually investigating the truth about their inherent feelings. For rather than finding out more about each other we have found ways to exclude and label each other. Director Al-Oboudi and cast have deliver a cautionary tale about our prejudices. This "Portrait" is a reflection of all who think they inherently right and that someone else must be held to account for their myopic opinions.
