The Nile Hilton Incident is a dark Egyptian thriller, where everyone is on the make. A murder investigation is mired by bureaucratic corruption.
The Story: Inspired by a real murder case, Tarik Saleh brings Nordic noir sensibilities to the Egyptian capital and a grubby world of personal, political and systemic corruption. Police detective Noredin, as casually amoral as any of his colleagues, is handed the case of a woman found murdered in a bedroom at Cairo’s Nile Hilton Hotel. Noredin initially views the job as just another opportunity to squeeze the usual suspects and hopefully pocket a few more bribes.
But as he uncovers the ever more disturbing roots and reach of the crime, the ambivalent antihero finds his conscience piqued. An outstanding performance by Fares Fares (Department Q) as Noredin. It paints an excoriating portrait of endemic corruption, made all the more potent by Metropia (LFF2009) director Saleh’s re-staging of the action to the days before the 2011 Tahir Square demonstrations.
