I'm really into late sixties and early seventies biker flicks. Most are awfully written and acted but are still fun to watch. One thing I've always noticed about old movies that makes them different than new ones is the amount of quiet moments. Moments that are just people walking , drinking coffee, etc.

7/10. In January 2011, the hotel maid Salwa witnesses the murder of the famous singer Lalena at the Nile Hilton Hotel in Cairo. The case of the murdered singer is closed almost immediately but with evidence pointing to a wealthy politician and business man, police officer Noredin Mustafa decides to look for Salwa and to continue the investigation on his own. Working in a highly immoral and corrupt justice system, Noredin soon finds himself personally involved in a much worse mess than he ever expected. This movie is loosely based on the circumstances surrounding the murder of Egyptian singer Suzanne Tamim in 2008. It's set right at the start of the Egyptian revolution of 2011, which was partially initiated as a protest against police brutality. The movie focuses on aspects of police corruption, prostitution, blackmail and abuse of power. In the midst of it is Noredin, a quiet man who suffers from drug addiction and alcoholism and who's initially as corrupt as anyone else but who has an interesting and credible character arc that is completely central to the story. This movie takes its time but it's never dull. It's well-written and very well-directed and it's a dark and realistic depiction of a city and a society on the brink of revolution. The actors are excellent, especially Fares Fares, who plays Noredin, and Mari Malek, who plays Salwa, who both have fantastic screen presence. This movie may be a bit of a slow burn but it's definitely worth the time.

No wonder, why this little man, got sick and sometimes hospitalize whenever I'm leaving him in the Philippines, to go out of the country to work abroad. It's because we grow up so closed together, from the day one up to now.
