Admired piece from one of the founders of the fledgling Emirates film industry.
The business man in partnership with an unscrupulous associate discovers he hasn't long to live. Meanwhile the member of the burglar trio wants to be free of their menacing boss. When he goes about robbing a neighbor's flat, the businessman sorts him out with a two by four and proposes a deal.
The shadow of COLLATERAL (two men in a car all night) hangs over this one and it doesn't register all that well on plausibility and pacing but it fields intriguing characters and has a few imaginative touches to hold interest. It does offer an unfamiliar voice in Arabic film.
Screening at the Sydney 2011 Arab Film festival was marred by greenish digital projection on all the productions so it's hard to put a value on the technical quality.
