Watch The Infidel…IT’S DAMN FUNNY!
Okay..went for an impromptu movie night with Audrey yesterday.
She’s been raving about The Infidel that’s out now. OMG GO AND WATCH IT..the guy who plays the lead character is so funny! The humour reminds me of Little Britain 🙂
My personal experience – a bit uncomfotable in the beginning because religion for me is such a touchy subject. Sorta wished there was more inthe story when he met his birth parent though.
Storeyline from IMDb
Meet MAHMUD NASIR (Omid Djalili), loving husband, doting father and something of a relaxed Muslim.
Does the F word occasionally pass his lips? Its hardly worth mentioning. Does he say his prayers five times a day? Of course! Well, usually Does he fast every day of Ramadan? Whos counting anyway?
He may not be the most observant, but in his heart he is as Muslim as it gets. But after his mothers death a discovery turns Mahmuds world upside down. He finds his birth certificate which reveals that not only was he adopted at birthbut hes Jewish, and his real name is Solly Shimshillewitz!
As Mahmud tumbles headlong into a full scale identity crisis, the only person he can turn to is LENNY (Richard Schiff), a drunken Jewish cabbie who agrees to give him lessons in Jewishness, which start with how to dance like Topol.
Watch the trailer and if you’re still not convinced, I dont know what to say -_-
