Baghdad, the playground for the rich and infamous, where anything can be bought - but for a price. This is Uday Hussein's world and with his depraved lust for debauchery and immorality, he helps himself to whatever turns him on. When army lieutenant Latif Yahia is summoned to Saddam's palace, he is faced with an impossible request - to be Uday's 'fiday' - his body double, or have his family condemned to death. In a world entrenched in betrayal and corruption, knowing who to trust becomes a matter of life or death for Latif, as he battles to escape from his forced existence. Written by
There is a reference to The Godfather in one of the first scenes where Latif is impersonating Uday. He acts as a double when entering and leaving an important meeting. When he leaves and is shot at by a young boy an orange cart is shown prominently with oranges falling. Oranges were present whenever death occurred or was about to in The Godfather and there was an orange cart featured when Don Corleone was shot at it. See more »
In the scene in which Latif's convoy of 3 black Mercedes arrive at a checkpoint (59:00min), bullet holes in the windscreen of the last car in the convey can be seen though its rear window, and can be seen again as the car leaves the checkpoint (59:15min). These holes are not apparent in other shots and it is only later in this scene that the cars come under attack, causing the windscreens to be shot out. See more »
I saw this movie not realizing that both leads were being played by one amazing actor!!! Dominic Cooper was exactly that: amazing. And deserving of an Oscar nomination when the time comes for handing them out. My film club was fortunate enough to have an interview with DC via Skype and found him to be as charming as he is talented.
Some seem to find fault with this film because it reminds them of Scarface. I don't get that at all. Perhaps they mean that at times it is operatic, over the top, but it is, after all, a biopic about a crazy man, and to me anyway, the parts of the film that deal with the double offset the high drama perfectly. Highly recommended!
