Boy From Heaven

Boy From Heaven / 2022 / Sweden / 126 min

After the death of a great imam, a brutal, bloody struggle for power begins, full of corruption and
manipulation. A fisherman’s son becomes a student at a prestigious Cairo university. After a few days, he becomes entangled in a spy plot. He tries to live up to his ideals, but is soon disillusioned. Swedish-Egyptian director Tariq Saleh draws his film with sharp tones. This is not only fascinating, well-made political fiction, but also an accusatory portrait of contemporary Egypt. Shot entirely in Turkey, the movie will surely be the subject of controversy in Cairo,
and maybe even censorship.
