Baad el Mawkeaa (After the Battle) (2012)
Critic Reviews for Baad el Mawkeaa (After the Battle)
Resonating with layers of personal and political meaning, the messy aftermath of the Egyptian revolution is captured with immediacy and excitement.
Despite its topical urgency, After the Battle plays like a daytime soap, with characters taking turns shouting on-the-nose dialogue at each other...
Working on multiple levels, helmer Yousry Nasrallah mines popular cinema and artier forms through a seemingly simple story of two worlds, exposing hypocrisies in each.
As a film, it's an indecipherable, chaotic blitzkrieg of half-baked ideas and hot-headed dramatisations of reality.
One of the weakest films in 2012 Cannes Fest, this Egyptian political melodrama about the 2011 uprise is misconceived and poorly executed.
