A false equivalence
14 August 2009 | by (Columbia MD) – See all my reviews

The story has its heart in the right place. This is largely a comedy in which two men, a Coptic Christian in hiding and pretending to be a Muslim, and a Muslim in hiding pretending to be a Coptic Christian, become close friends, neither knowing of the other's deception. What will be their reaction when they find that they in fact do not belong to the same religion? The two deceivers are presented as being in equivalent situations, which aids in presenting a tidy can't-we-all-be-friends message but is fundamentally dishonest: the Copts are at the mercy of the majority Muslim population and are constantly persecuted by them. The movie can be enjoyed if you ignore this reality.
