This brilliant Egyptian thriller directed by acclaimed Swedish producer, journalist, animator and filmmaker Tarik Saleh (Tommy, Metropia) brings a Nordic noir sensibility to a Cairo story inspired by a real murder case. Police detective Noredin (Fares) is investigating a murder in the capital’s Nile Hilton Hotel. Initially, the amoral Noredin views the job as just another opportunity to pocket a few more bribes. But as he uncovers increasingly disturbing details that reach beyond the crime itself, this ambivalent anti-hero finds his conscience piqued. Excellent performances and an intelligent script elevate this drama from a conventional procedural to an excoriating portrait of systemic corruption, set – movingly – in the days before the 2011 Tahrir Square uprising.
