Inspired by a real murder case, there is an element of Nordic noir to this political thriller, set in Cairo in the weeks before the 2011 Tahrir Square demonstrations.
Police Detective Noredin (Fares Fares) is handed the case of a famous club singer found murdered in a bedroom at Cairo’s Nile Hilton Hotel. As he starts to uncover the involvement of Egypt’s power elite in what at first seemed like a crime of passion, he enters a paranoid world of individual and systemic corruption.
With echoes of classics such as The French Connection and the great Jean-Pierre Melville, this gripping and moody neo-noir was winner of the Sundance World Cinema Grand Jury Prize.
