If there is one movie which anyone would find intruiging, it would be about a Muslim taxi driver (cabbie) who whilst clearing out the home of his recently departed mother discovers he was adopted and infact was Jewish at birth. There ensues some funny moments as Mahmud (Omid Djalili) begins his journey in discovering his Jewish roots – The Infidel.
There’s been much in the papers about the movie. Some praise it for being a sensitive portrayal of a painful journey into identity, others deem it to be not deep enough. I thought it was funny – but you need to understand British humour otherwise it’ll be wasted on you.
Do watch it if you can!
