A political thriller based on a true story. Weeks before the 2011 Egyptian revolution, Noredin (Fares Fares), a police officer in Cairo's corrupt system, investigates the murder of a famous club singer at the Nile Hilton Hotel. What initially seems to be a crime of passion turns into something that concerns the very power elite of Egypt. Tarik Saleh's thriller is a refreshing and politically potent update of classic noir. ★★★★ "Corruption seeps into every pore of Egyptian society in Tarik Saleh’s impressive thriller" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent ★★★★ "What elevates this crime procedural to something sharper is an Arab Spring backdrop that bristles with the threat of violence and some peppery comment on Mubarak's corrosive regime. Surprising, edgy stuff" - Phil de Semlyen, Time Out ★★★★ "Has the twistiness and nihilism of an Egyptian Chinatown" - Olly Richards, Empire ★★★★ "A cracking Cairo thriller" - Simran Hans, The Observer
