What's The Deal with Kalemni Shukran?
Have you seen the new Egyptian movie 'Kalemni Shukran' ?
It has stirred up quite the criticism!
One Egyptian critic thinks that with this movie, the Egyptian movie industry has reached a new low!
The movie seems to get a few strange messages across; Kudos to the Egyptian police; they're perfect! Naguib Sawiris is the angel of businessmen! The only solution to getting over your poverty is prostitution!!!
The movie stars Amr Abdul Jalil, who plays a man who gets paid to attend talk shows and clap and Ghada Abderrazeq, a prostitute who has a sister who is an online prostitute!
Other characters include a baker who hides behind a religious beard, but sells the flour in the black market instead of making cheap bread for the layman and an unemployed man who's mission is to threaten everyone, everyday with committing suicide!
The critic wonders why the director of the movie has taken such a passive path towards the authority, although he has directed other good movies before like 'Hia Fawdha' and 'Heena Maysara' and 'Dukkan Shehata', which have also created a lot of controversy.
What do you think?
Personally, I haven't seen the movie, so I would like an insight into your opinion.
