A good movie on the way of Wes Anderson
6 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Inspite of I am Egyptian, i don't like Egyptian movies especially at the last 4 years except few of them,but this one is totally different from what Egypt used to produce last years. It is about a touchy issue in Egyptian community,the relationship between Muslims & Christians,the director choose the school children to deal with that issue demonstrating also the corruption in educational system in Egypt & the differences between private schools & governmental ones.He showed in a simple way that the religious persecution issue in Egypt is such a myth. The director used a new way in directing according to Egyptian cinema,if an American saw this movie he might think it is one of Wes Anderson movies, The same way in directing,same bright colors,same movement of camera, the centralization method of camera which Wes is famous with & even the music sounded like Wes movies. May some think it's copying,but I like it especially I'm a fan of Wes movies. The scenario was great & touchy & showed the characters feelings. The ending was brilliant showed Muslim & Christian are equal,you cant recognize them from each other in Egyptian community(when we discover at the end of the movie that the teacher we thought she is a Christian,discovered to be a Muslim),It showed that they are equal even in punishment at the end of the movie. This is one of Egyptian modern cinema finest & I support to produce more like that. 4 out of 5
