Omid as his usual brilliant self!
The Infidel review
18th April 2010
This movie was a pleasure to watch!Religion and related subjects are taken so seriously these days, that for me it was just a breath of fresh air that someone had the brilliant idea to make a movie addressing the issue.Omid was brilliant as always, although he is at his best being funny. The very serious parts were believable but a little too theatrical and over the top. But the movie worked for me.With people in Britain becoming so over PC about everything it seems, it's really a necessity to make more movies like this. Being able to laugh at matters that we deem serious is important AND Healthy.Having said that, I noticed a few people get up and leave in the middle of the movie, no doubt 'offended' (why go and see the movie then?), still I guess some people were just not blessed with a sense of humour!I do hope they find a solution to their predicament: being able to laugh at oneself and at life is a concept to be upheld and applauded!
