One of Worst Movie Made In Egypt
13 December 2014 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

I do not like Ibrahim Batout movies. Nobody can understand them. Nobody could understand Yousef Chahine also but because he was the true originator of indie cinema in Egypt since long ago, we accepted his stories because his cinematography and style was original for that time. Nobody was like him or made movie like him before. I went to see EL OTT at the CIFF and regretted entering the screening. Two gangsters go head to head after one of them has a child missing. One enjoys to kill while the other doesn't. Yawn!!! To top off the disenchantment, we are introduced to a slew of cliché characters with horrendous acting skills. The actors playing both gangsters should have traded roles. Had I not been stuck sitting in the middle of an aisle I would have abandoned the screening before falling asleep. Didn't understand the ghost character either or what Set had to do with anything. If you want to see a good Egyptian film, go see Villa 69. It was the highlight of the festival.
