The film's sheer bravura is breathtaking.

Remarkably, the film doesn't take sides. This in itself raises it above a purely political discussion in favor of a sweeping criticism of prejudice and inhumanity. Yet it will be remembered as one of the most telling depictions of modern Egypt yet filmed.

Boasting superb camerawork from d.p. Ahmed Gabr and stellar crowd direction, Clash might strike some as crossing too often into hysteria, yet this is bravura filmmaking with a kick-in-the-gut message about chaos and cruelty (with some humanity).

An interesting film, with a little more sobriety and a more elaborate development, would have been excellent. [Full review in Spanish]
