Criticism of corruption and fundamentalism” (Variety): a TV preacher from Cairo gets caught up in a political conspiracy. The view towards the dark alliance between religious establishment, state, corruption, mass media and Islamic extremism is packaged in an exceptional thriller. In Egypt, the film provided for full cinemas and an outcry from the Sunni clergy who demanded the film be prohibited. THE PREACHER, which is based on the novel of a journalist, relates how religion is misused for power. A TV Imam, personified by Amr Saad with charm, warmth and eloquence, fights for keeping up his religious principles and secular temptations.
