Most overt ideological film I've ever seen
23 February 2004 | by (Philadelphia PA) – See all my reviews

The obvious propaganda and overt use of mis en scene and cinematography is at work in this long film. Nasser, the Egyptian president during the 50's through the 70's, is shown as a brave, noble, selfless, perfect, without feeling, supernatural human being. The man who takes time out of important meetings to play with his children, who are all beautiful and perfectly obedient as the camera shows. A wife who never questions, always supports, and Nasser himself always depicted as thinking hard, never sleeping or drinking, smoking occasionally. "I share your feelings dear brothers", and constantly ingrained in Muslim support of their cause. While my Egyptian professor thinks that in real life, it was his actions who caused the downfall of Egypt, and the current state it is in today. Your classic low angle shots of the flag, high angle shots looking down on him, close ups, and intimacy with his facial expressions force the viewer into sympathy for him. Other parties, such as the old diplomats, are shown doing nothing but drinking again and again. The Israelis are given no characters or closeups, rather are only shown in tanks and legions of armies. The french, shown as drinking idiots, with funny nonsensical facial expressions. While the Egyptians, do everything through Non-violence in the film. Such as when they took over the Suez Canal, even the Generals are shown without any firearms.

Again, this is a long film, because a patriotic ideology is at work, attempting to show Egyptians, that its bad now, but this was the way things were. This was when things were good.
