I recommend watching this film.
10 December 2014 | by mynewemail-179-113982See all my reviews

10/10 This is one of the best Egyptian films I have watched. Ibrahim El Batout is a director to follow. He has matured and is getting closer to his audience with this film. This film is a very good example of how to mix art with entertainment. Lots of action and very deep moments. Amr Waked is one of my favorite Arab actors. He plays El Ott with such profound intensity. I also loved Amr Farouk, the charismatic actor playing his brother. Such an educating film about the underworld of Egypt. And for once an Egyptian film with no video clips. Farouk Elfishawy, is not my kind of actor, but in this film he is very well utilised. I love the locations and the photography of this film. If we should see more Arabic films like that, then Arabic cinema is moving forward. I recommend watching this film.
