DVD: The Infidel, For retail & rental (Revolver)

Click to follow

In this flat British indie comedy, a Muslim (Omid Djalili) discovers that his biological parents were actually Jewish.

It's an idea with some comic mileage, but The Infidel is so afraid of its own premise that the hero doesn't even question his Islamic beliefs, partly because, as a swearing, drinking prayer-dodger, he didn't have many to begin with. All he learns, apart from how to say "oy vey", is that it's possible for a Muslim to have a Jewish friend. Who'd have thought it?
