Cairo Conspiracy

126 minutes 2022 7.0

The top leader of the prestigious Muslim university Al-Azhar in Cairo dies. A new grand imam must therefore be appointed and this triggers conflict and arguments between the military, the intelligence service and various religious factions. At the center of it all is Adam, a young student who has just arrived in the big city. He becomes a small piece in a big power game. Boy From Heaven is a film by Swedish Tarik Saleh and is Sweden's Oscar candidate. Tawfeek Barhom impresses in the role of Adam, and Fares Fares is fabulous as the cynical intelligence officer Ibrahim. Boy from Heaven is a well-written, sophisticated and stylishly photographed thriller of a caliber we all too rarely see in cinemas today.
