THE NILE HILTON INCIDENT

The reason of this suspense movie, directed by the Swedish director Tarik Saleh, is a true murder case which held the Egyptian media under its spell. Noredin, an ordinary corrupt police detective in Cairo, fills his salary by bribing small shop owners and criminals. One night a murder case is assigned to him. The body of a singer is found in the Nile Hilton hotel. At first, it looked like a ‘crime passionel’, but after a while the trail leads to the Egyptian elite. The film won the Grand Jury-prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
