Without much publicity, we have now come to know that an Egyptian film will be released in May, dealing with the details of the relationship between the Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptian army, the two major events that shook the country of Canaan, and all the cataclysmic milestones experienced by Egypt from January 2011 until June 2013.
The film was titled “Days of Rage and Revolution”, and then changed to “Very Confidential”. The cast is spectacular to say the least, from the professional scriptwriter Wahid Hamid, the man behind Al-Gama'a series in its two parts, and a tremendous record of filmmaking. Then we have a series of stars such as Mahmoud Hamida, Ahmed Saqqa, Mohammed Ramadan, Khaled Al-Sawi, Nabil Al-Halafawi, Ahmed Rizk and Abdel-Aziz Makhion. The movie is produced by businessman and media figure Ahmed Abou Hashima with Kamel Abu Zekri.
The characters of the current president, Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and the man behind the Brotherhood, Khairat al-Shater, will be characterized in the film, as well as the head of the military council, Marshal Hussein Tantawi, and of course the isolated president Mohamed Morsi, the western wall for the Muslim Brotherhood.
Is it too early to produce a film without much perspective, especially since the events tackled in this picture are still playing out in the current state of affairs? Can the audience really watch this movie without being blindsided?Mashari Althaydi
