Goofs

Towards the beginning of the film, Police Chief Kammal is watching TV, and says that Tunisia is going to pot (presumably because of the Arab Spring uprisings) and yet still beat Egypt at football. There was no international football match between the two countries around then, though there was a friendly shortly after. See more »

Excellent cop movie
16 October 2017 | by kohle-69615See all my reviews

Movie about a corrupt cop who tries to solve a murder to a songstress in Cairo (Egypt) and gets deeper and deeper into the crooked administration of the government.

This is one of the best cop films of recent times.

It's really great to have a seldom seen location for crime. I think many are fed up with New York, L. A., San Francisco, Chicago ... .

The acting of the disillusioned cop is very good.

The film score is unobtrusive and doesn't push to the fore.

Cinematography is awesome. There are cool drives through nightly Cairo.

The movie is at the same level like other great films about corruption e.g. Chinatown or Bad Lieutenant (Abel Ferrara).
