A must see movie about the unbelievable corruptiion in our world
Fares Fares (born in Lebanon) is a very well known actor in Sweden where he starred in the Department Q series; he has some presence in other countries but sadly not in an important role like the one in The Nile Hilton Incident
Fares is Noredin Mostafa; a very corrupt cop in Egypt in 2011. The first few minutes of the movie shows the small scams the Egyptian police commits until a horrible assassination occurred in the Nile Hilton hotel.
Based on real facts and with the background of the Egyptian revolution in 2011, the movie paced spiraling events keep you tied to the screen until the formidable ending (which has nothing to do with the feel good American endings)
A singer is killed in his room. The killer identity emerges immediately; however the investigation is not important; but the corruption of a system that protects rich and punish lower classes and immigrants (ring a bell ?)
Some events sound like joke but are far from it. It was (or still is) the tragic reality of countries where the political system became the enemy of the people.
In brief; a hard but very necessary movie
