Propaganda!
10 September 2012 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

Has no touch of the artist, the movie appears as a just governmental manifesto against the political Islam activists, notably the then banned Brotherhood Group. Wahid Hamed, the writer, translate his hostility against the Group into that script. All characters has no single positive aspect, except the low-income and communist friend, Ahmed Rateb. Adel Imam, the Leader as being called nowadays, played one of his great roles. The poor-rooted lawyer who decided to decline whatever established societal values but his won ones. He involved in the corruption until his ears. The devil looks-like Riad Al-Khouly, the Islamic counterpart to Imam's corruption, did a huge effort to worsening the character! Who considered that movie one of the biggest movies that criticized the toppled regime of Hosny Mubarak ignored the fact that Sheriff Arafa, the director, has directed the presidential campaign of Mubarak. Mr. Hamed himself is married to ex-chairwoman of the Egyptian State TV (the ultimate sensitive position withing the Police State), and his son Marawan Hamed has directed several promotional films on behalf the toppled regime!
