One of The Best, A New Experience !
16 February 2011 | by MoseebaSee all my reviews

Although this movie came out to theaters during the Egptian Revolution 2010, I decided to watch it once the Movies reopen their doors, and it was a Great experience that's totally new for the Egyptian Cinema Industry. At first, I felt more like a documentary movie than a feature film, but then I realized that Its drama is within the characters not the events, as the writer (also the director) Ahmed Abdullah delivered a new interpretation for this group of young people's feelings, by focusing on the small details and simple incidents happening during their daily life, also he showed a new view for Alexandria, its Talented youth, their musical bands, their hobbies, their art works & graffiti.

The acting ensemble was awesome, not focusing on Khaled Abol Naga only, but gave each one their chance to show us a very realistic and simple performance, with a nice guest appearance of Menna Shalbi.

What made (microphone) a great movie was its direction and Cinematography, new angles in Egyptian films, and the songs selection for sure.

Just a little flaws in the script & storyline got to the movie, but didn't affect amusement.

Is Microphone the best Egyptian Movie?!... I can't tell, but when you watch it, you can't deny that this movie is new & a point of transition in the Egyptian Movie Industry.
