A very long documentary

This movie is a fairly good production, but the real problem is in the script. Films based on true characters should focus on an important period of the character. Unfortunately, this movie was too ambitious trying to tell everything about Sadat in 3 hours (from birth till grave). That's why it showed a lot of twists in rhythm and story flow. It makes you think of a very long documentary. Besides, no perfect character movie can depend entirely on the autobiography of this character. Depending on "Quest for One's Self" the famous Sadat book, was a fatal mistake. That's why the film shows only one face of Sadat, there are no grey zones and no depth. Ahmed Zaki is great as usual and photography (Tarek Telmesany) is superb. This is a movie which is not a masterpiece but no one dares miss it !
