Outlawed in Egypt
This movie has shaken Egypt to its very core, it has been deemed so provocative that it is BANNED. The director is Egyptian, the move is set in Cairo (yet filmed funnily enough in Istanbul because of the ban). It has yeilded award in the Cannes film festival, and it is simply put SUPERB.
The camera is well used, the atmosphere build up is immensely satisfying. And it ultimately proves the old saying “Man will be free when the last King has been strangled with the last priests entrials”- This is a CULT movie in the making. Unfortunately you will never see this film in Egypt.
Boy from Heaven
Why the name change?
Anyway, the experience was absolutely beautiful. Seeing this at the premiere in Sweden where the director/writer Tarik Saleh could further explain his personal motivations and ideas around the story just made it so much special and as a Swede, I’m happy to see the culture of my Arabic neighbours being represented in such a masterfully crafted way. I could get the vibe of how a western film tells a story but also delve deep into a trance-like state for what family, tradition, symbolisism and religious perspectives and experiences are like.
The genre is of the captivated and serious kind, but also of the holy, which suits its original film title. Great casting, cinematography, pacing and story. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
I hope to see a lot more cultural representation from the middle east and collaborations in Sweden in the future. This might just be a really good taste of what’s to come.
